Johannesburg - A man died and nine people were injured in a crash on Old Philadelphia road, in the Western Cape, on Thursday, paramedics said.

ER24 spokesperson Andre Visser said the dead man was among nine people thrown of the back of the bakkie when it was hit side-on by a truck.

"The impact forced both vehicles off the road. The bakkie overturned and landed on its roof before being pinned between a tree on the side of the road and the truck," he said.

The injured were taken to nearby hospitals and clinics.
