Three people have died following a head-on collision between a VW Golf and a truck on the N12, ten kilometers outside of Potchefstroom early this morning.

The cause of the incident is unclear at this stage, but the VW Golf was traveling in the direction of Johannesburg when it collided head-on with the truck. When ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene they could see that the collision was severe judging by the amount of damage sustained to the Golf. 
 
Paramedics found three occupants in the Golf, two male and one female. All three the occupants had sustained various fatal injuries and were later declared dead at the scene.
 
The two occupants who were in the truck at the time of the collision, sustained no injuries. Local law enforcement officials were at the scene and will be investigating the cause of the incident further.
