A man has died and two others were injured on Saturday evening following an accident on the N3 highway close to the London offramp, near Modderfontein.

ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said paramedics had arrived on the scene to find two light motor vehicles and a bakkie in the left-hand emergency lane.

"Upon closer inspection, paramedics found the body of a man lying partially beneath one of the vehicles.

"Assessment showed that the man had sustained numerous injuries and showed no signs of life. Unfortunately, nothing could be done for him and he was declared dead," he said.

Meiring said two other patients were found one the scene. A man, believed to be in his 60s, was found to be in a critical condition, while a woman was found to have sustained moderate injuries.

He said paramedics had treated the patients and provided the critically injured man with advanced life support interventions.

"Once treated, the patients were transported to nearby hospitals for urgent treatment," he said.

The details surrounding this incident are not yet known but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
