Cape Town - Two people have died and four were injured in an accident on the R617 in KwaZulu-Natal on Saturday.

ER24 paramedics were not sure how the accident occurred, but found it overturned on the side of the road. There were at least six people in the car at the time of the accident.

ER24 spokesperson Pieter Rossouw said that paramedics could not determine whether the bakkie had a canopy, due to the extensive damage it received during the accident.

Paramedics discovered two people with fatal injuries, and four with moderate injuries. The injured were treated on the scene before being transported to various hospitals.

The cause of the accident remains unclear and police were on the scene for further investigation.
