Another crash claimed the lives of two motorists on the N3 outside Heidelberg. A man and a woman were killed last night, 11 April 2021, and another injured in a collision between two trucks, a bakkie, and a light motor vehicle on the N3 in Heidelburg.
ER24 paramedics and other emergency services arrived on the scene to find a large truck on its side blocking one side of the highway. A wrecked light motor vehicle was found on the side of the road while the two other vehicles were found a short distance away.
Medics quickly assessed the patients and found that a woman in the car and a man in the bakkie had sustained fatal injuries. Nothing could be done to resuscitate the patients and they were declared dead.
The driver of the one track was assessed and found to have sustained minor injuries. The man was treated and transported to a nearby hospital for further care. The driver of the second truck was not found on the scene and local authorities are looking for information that could help them locate the driver.
