Five people have died after a collision between a car and a bakkie on the N4 Schoemanskloof road in Mpumalanga.
All the deceased were occupants in the car.
Department of Safety, Security and Community Liaison’s spokesperson Joseph Mabuza says two people travelling in the bakkie sustained serious injuries.
Mabuza says the driver of the car lost control and the vehicle swerved towards the opposite direction colliding with a bakkie.
Meanwhile on Saturday, a man was critically injured when the car he was driving left the road and overturned on the M13 near Westville, Durban.
At this stage the cause of the crash is unknown but police are investigating.
