Johannesburg - A man was killed and two others were injured when their car overturned on the N1 just before the Hammanskraal off-ramp in northern Gauteng on Wednesday, paramedics said.

Netcare911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks said the man died after being flung from the car.

"The man sustained critical injuries and was declared dead on the scene while two others were... trapped in the wreckage of the car."

He said the Jaws of Life and other rescue equipment were used to extricate the injured from the wreckage before they were taken to the Jubilee Hospital.
