Johannesburg - Two people were killed in an accident on the R24 in Magaliesburg, Gauteng on Saturday, paramedics said.

Two others were injured, said Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha.

The vehicle veered off the road, overturned and came to a stop in the field.

All four occupants were thrown out of the car.

"After triaging it was found that a man had tragically died on impact, while three others were critically injured," said Botha.

"A woman went into cardiac arrest and medics worked fervently to resuscitate her, tragically despite their efforts, she was declared dead at the scene."

The injured were stabilised on scene before being transported to a nearby hospital.
