One person died while two others were critically injured in a roll-over accident on the N2 North between Winklespruit and Doonside this afternoon. Exact detail to the cause of the accident and preceding events will remain a subject for police investigation and comment.
Netcare 911 paramedics and the fire department arrived at the scene and found the injured lying several meters away from the crumpled remains of their vehicle. After triaging it was found that two adults and a baby sustained life threatening injuries.
Paramedics worked fervently for some time to try and resuscitate the adult female, tragically she died despite all the efforts. The male was placed on a ventilator and then paramedics transported the father and baby to Prince Mshiyeni hospital for the care that he required.
