Nelspruit - Five people burnt to death after a head-on collision on Badplaas Road in Nelspruit on Tuesday, paramedics said.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks said the cars collided and skidded off the road. They both came to halt in a field alongside the road and then caught on fire.

When paramedics arrived at the scene both cars were still on fire, he said. There were three people in one vehicle and two in the other.

Firefighters managed to extinguish the flames but all five bodies were burnt beyond recognition, Wicks said
