Bakkie rollover leaves one dead, another critical on the N1 highway in Barrage.

Last night, a man was killed and another critically injured when their bakkie rolled on the N1 highway in Barrage.

ER24 and the Free State EMS arrived at 19h05 to find a bakkie on its roof on the side of the road. Two men were found lying trapped inside the vehicle.

ER24 medics had to use specialised equipment to free the trapped men from the car.

Once released, medics assessed the patients and found that one man had sustained fatal injuries while the second man was in a critical condition.

The man was treated for his injuries and provided with pain-relief medication before he was transported to a provincial hospital for further care. 

Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
