Cape Town - A woman in her 20s and a seven-month-old baby were killed in a crash on the N4 near the Doornpoort Plaza outside Pretoria on Saturday morning, paramedics said.

ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said the white VW Polo was lying on its side on the edge of the road about 2km after the plaza toll plaza going towards Brits.

The woman and baby were found a few metres away from the vehicle and declared dead.

Another woman and a three-year-old child were also apparently involved in the crash and had been taken to hospital.

An investigation would establish the cause of the tragedy.

The road was closed so that the wreckage of the crash could be cleared and was reopened after noon.
