Four men were killed and three others injured this afternoon when two light motor vehicles collided head-on on the N17 Bethal Road, approximately 15km outside of Ermelo.

At 16h30, ER24 and other services arrived on the scene to find the two wrecked vehicles in the middle of the road. Four men were found lying around one vehicle while a woman and two children were seated near the other vehicle.
