A man was killed and three others were left with minor injuries when a minibus and a light motor vehicle collided at the Giel Basson and Bosmansdam intersection in Plattekloof, on Saturday, October 9.
According to ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring, when ER24 and other services arrived just after 11 am they found the minibus on its side on the pavement while the car was on the side of the road.
Meiring says a man was found lying in the minibus while three men, a woman and a two-year-old girl, were found seated near the car.
” Medics assessed the patients and found that the man inside the minibus had already succumbed to his numerous injuries. Nothing could be done for him, and he was declared dead. The woman, man and child, were found with moderate injuries, while the two other men had sustained minor injuries,” Meiring indicated.
Meiring mentioned further that medics treated the patients and thereafter transported them to nearby hospitals for further care, while the men with minor injuries declined transportation to a hospital.
