A man was killed and another injured when a bakkie rolled at the N12/R501 intersection in Carletonville on the

One man was lying approximately 50 metres away while another man was walking around on the scene. The man lying in the road was assessed and found to have sustained fatal injuries. Nothing could be done for him and he was declared dead on the scene. The second man was assessed and found to have sustained only moderate injuries.
