The casualties on our roads continued on Sunday as five people were killed in two separate accidents and others wounded.

Netcare 911 paramedics responded at 2.38pm to reports of a serious car crash on the R334 Daniel Pienaar Street in Uitenhage, Netcare 911 spokesman Shawn Herbst said.

“Reports from the scene indicate that the driver of a light motor vehicle lost control resulting in a rollover with passengers being ejected in the process. Paramedics assessed all the patients on [the] scene and found the two people had sustained fatal injuries and were declared deceased on the scene.”

Another person was found to have sustained serious injuries and required the treatment of an emergency care practitioner. Four other people had sustained injuries ranging from minor to moderate. Once stabilised, all the patients were transported to hospital for further treatment, Herbst said.
In another crash, the ER24 paramedics as well as provincial services and the fire department were on the scene at 5.10pm to find two men, aged 70 and 83, and a 72-year-old woman had suffered multiple injuries and showed no signs of life, ER24 spokesman Ross Campbell said.
“They were declared dead on arrival. Two others from the SUV and one male in his mid 40s from the bus had sustained serious injuries and were taken to a private hospital in Carletonville nearby. Thirty-eight other passengers from the bus elected not to be taken to hospital.”

The exact circumstances surrounding the accident were unknown at this stage, Campbell said.
