Cape Town – Three people were killed and two were injured when a vehicle overturned on the N1 in Bloemfontein on Sunday, paramedics said.

ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said all occupants were ejected from the car when the driver lost control.

"Three adults sustained fatal injuries. There was nothing that paramedics could do for them and they were declared dead on the scene," Vermaak said.

It is believed the car had swerved to avoid another vehicle when the driver lost control.

The two injured passengers were treated on scene and transported to the nearest hospital.
