About 13 people were injured in a seven-car pile on the N12 freeway east-bound on Sunday, Johannesburg paramedics said.
Four people were seriously injured and nine others suffered minor injuries when seven cars collided on the freeway at about 2am, ER24 spokeswoman Vanessa Jackson said.
“It seems that one car was rear-ended and it rolled. Other five cars then crashed into the first two cars.”
All four lanes of the freeway between the Xavier on-ramp and Klipriver off-ramp were closed while emergency workers cleared the road.
Two bakkies and five cars were involved and some occupants were thrown out of the vehicles when the accident occurred.
All the injured sent to nearby hospitals and the road was opened to traffic at about 5am. – Sapa
