Johannesburg - A woman was killed a man seriously injured when their car crashed into a tree on the N1 near Stilfontein in the North West on Saturday night, paramedics said.

It was understood that the driver had lost control of the car, ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said.

The car hit the tree and rolled several times.

When paramedics arrived at the scene they found the woman and the man lying a few metres away from the vehicle.

"Paramedics assessed the patients and found that the female had sustained a severe, fatal injury to her head," said Meiring.

"Unfortunately nothing more could be done for the patient and she was declared dead."

The man had sustained serious injuries to his head and chest. He was treated on the scene and then transported to a nearby hospital.

While paramedics were busy on the scene a second accident happened in the same place because of the debris.

Meiring said fortunately the two occupants in the second accident escaped uninjured.
