Edenburg — A woman has been killed and a man sustained moderate injuries following a collision between a bakkie and a truck on the N1 South about 20kms outside of Edenburg in the Free State this morning.
When ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene at approximately 09H00, they found the provincial EMS already in attendance and treating the injured man. Paramedics also found a woman who was lying in the veld roughly 10m from the bakkie. Unfortunately, she had sustained fatal injuries and was declared dead at the scene by paramedics.
The provincial EMS transported the injured man to the hospital for further medical care. The truck driver sustained no injuries.
