Johannesburg - Two people have died and a third was seriously injured after a car rolled down an embankment off the R37 between Lydenburg and Sabie on Monday morning in Mpumalanga, paramedics said.

"Netcare 911 paramedics arrived at the scene and found that a motor vehicle left the roadway, overturned several times and came to a standstill at the bottom on an embankment on its wheels," Netcare 911 spokesperson Santi Steinmann said.
