Johannesburg - A man was killed when a bakkie collided with an articulated truck on the R48 on the bridge that passes over the N1 in Bloemfontein on Monday evening, paramedics said.

The cause of the accident was not clear, but it seemed that the driver of the light motor vehicle was unable to avoid slamming into the side of the truck, Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks said.

Paramedics said a man was declared dead and another one, the passenger, was critically injured. The injured man was taken to Pelonomi Hospital.

The truck driver was not hurt.
