Two killed, four injured in Eikenhof collision

ER24 responded to reports of an accident on September 14.

Two people died, while four others were left injured, following a collision between a bakkie and a kombi on September 14 in Eikenhof, South of Johannesburg.

When ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene shortly after 19:30, they found two patients lying in the middle of the road.

“The two men had sustained fatal injuries and were declared dead at the scene by our paramedics. Three others were found lying next to the road and had sustained serious injuries. The driver of the kombi was still inside the vehicle and had sustained moderate injuries,” said Ineke van Huyssteen from ER24.

It is understood that the bakkie broke down and was being pushed by a group of men when the kombi rear-ended the bakkie.

ER24 and various other medical services at the scene treated the patients before transporting them to the hospital for further medical care.

The exact circumstances surrounding the incident is not known to our paramedics, but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
