Johannesburg - A man was killed and two others seriously injured when a car and bakkie collided on Kraalkop Road in Fochville, near Carletonville, Gauteng, on Sunday night, paramedics said.

"The two collided and skidded to a halt near the initial point of impact."

Paramedics arrived on the scene to find the man in a critical condition and two others who had sustained serious injuries.

"All were treated and stabilised at the roadside and transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital," said Wicks.

The critically injured man died from injuries sustained.
