Three Killed, Six Injured In Ghastly Auto Crash.

Three people have died and six are left injured after a ghastly crash on the N1 north highway between Johannesburg and Pretoria on Tuesday.

According to Tshwane emergency services deputy chief Charles Mabaso, the accident occurred just after the Olifantsfontein off-ramp and involved two cars.

“Two vehicles were involved. The number of patients on the scene is nine — and of the nine, we have three fatalities who are male.

“All six patients who are the injured have been treated at the scene by various emergency medical services and sustained critical injuries,” he told TimesLIVE, a local news media in South Africa. 

Lanes on that side of the highway have since been closed.


Mabaso said the cause of the accident was unknown but confirmed law enforcement would investigate further.

However, speculation has it that overspeeding might have been the cause of the accident.
