Cape Town - Four people were killed and another two seriously injured when their vehicle crashed into a concrete barrier in Cape Town early on Sunday, a traffic official said.

Kenny Africa, spokesperson for Western Cape Traffic, said the driver of the Toyota RunX appeared to lose control and the vehicle crashed into the concrete barrier in the middle of the R300 near the footbridge going towards Mitchell's Plain.

The vehicle broke into pieces from the impact, killing two women and two men in the accident at around 05:00.

A man and a woman survived with very serious injuries and were taken to hospital.

The road will remain closed for an investigation and it will be reopened once the scene has been cleared.
