Woman dies in car crash

A woman died and four others were injured, including two children aged three and five, when their car crashed into a tree along the N1 in Joostenbergvlakte on Friday, June 22.

ER24’s Russel Meiring said paramedics found the car against a small tree and the woman was lying partially outside the front passenger seat.

She had extensive injuries and paramedics tried to resuscitate her.

“Unfortunately, after 20 minutes, no vital signs returned and the woman was declared dead,” said Mr Meiring.

Four other people, including the children, were assessed at the scene and treated for injuries. They were transported to Kraaifontein day hospital.
