04 January 2018 | From Arrive Alive


Four people were killed and nine others injured this afternoon following a head-on collision between a bakkie and light motor vehicle on the N1 Highway, approximately 15 km outside of Worcester towards Paarl.
ER24 paramedics, along with Metro, Breda Fire, and other services, arrived on the scene to find both wrecked vehicles on the side of the road, the bakkie lying on its side. The occupants of both vehicles were found lying scattered around the scene.

Paramedics immediately began to assess the patients and found one man and two women had already succumbed to their multiple, fatal injuries. Nothing more could be done for them and they were later declared dead.
Ten other patients were found at the scene, including two children. Four were found to be in a critical condition while five others were found with injuries ranging from minor to moderate.
Paramedics immediately treated the patients and provided the critically injured with advanced life support interventions. Once treated, the patients were transported to Worcester Provincial for urgent care. 
Unfortunately, upon arrival at a hospital, one of the critically injured patients, a woman, succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead.
The exact details surrounding the incident are not yet known but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
