Head-on collision leaves one critical, four dead outside of Ermelo, Mpumalanga

13 August 2019 | From Arrive Alive


A child was left critically injured and four others were killed when a truck and a light motor vehicle collided head-on on the N11, approximately 13km outside of Ermelo, Mpumalanga.
ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene at 15h30 to find the Provincial Ambulance and Fire Services already in attendance.
A wrecked light motor vehicle sat in the middle of the road while a truck had come to a stop on the side of the road.
On closer inspection, medics found a woman lying trapped inside the light motor vehicle while a man and three children lay near the vehicle.
Assessments showed that the man, woman and a boy, believed to be 10-years-old, had sustained numerous injuries and showed no signs of life. Nothing could be done for them and they were later declared dead.
Two other children, a boy and a girl, were assessed on the scene and found to be in a critical condition, having sustained numerous injuries.
The children were treated for their injuries, provided with advanced life support interventions, and were thereafter transported to a nearby hospital for further care.
Unfortunately, on route to hospital, the young girl succumbed to her injuries.
The driver of the truck was assessed and found to have escaped injury.
The details surrounding this incident are not yet known but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
