Durban - A woman has been killed and nine others injured after a collision between a bakkie and a light motor vehicle on the N12, just outside Potchefstroom.

ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said paramedics found a light motor vehicle and bakkie lying on the side of the road. The bakkie lay on its side after it rolled multiple times, Meiring said.

"On assessment, paramedics found the lifeless body of a woman. Unfortunately, the woman had already succumbed to her multiple fatal injuries. Nothing more could be done for the patient and she was declared dead on scene."

Nine other victims were found on scene, including three children, aged two, six and twelve years.

"Paramedics treated the patients and provided the critically injured patients with advanced life support interventions. Once treated, the patients were transported to Carletonville and Potchefstroom Hospital for urgent treatment," Meiring said.
