Two men were killed and two others injured in the early hours of this morning after two trucks collided head-on on the N14, 30km outside of Upington, Northern Cape.
ER24 paramedics, along with provincial services, arrived on the scene and found both trucks on the side of the road. The smaller truck of the two had sustained a heavy amount of damage in the collision.
On assessment of the scene, paramedics found that two men from the smaller truck had sustained fatal injuries. Unfortunately nothing could be done for those patients and they were declared dead on scene.
Two other occupants were found to have sustained moderate injuries.
They were treated for their injuries and thereafter transported to a nearby hospital for further treatment.
The driver of the large truck fortunately escaped without injury.
Local authorities were on scene for further investigations.
