Medics found that one person from the bakkie and another from the burnt out car had sustained fatal injuries.
At least twelve other patients, five critical and seven others were found to have sustained minor to moderate injuries and were treated on scene.
Sadly one of the critically injured patients condition had rapidly deteriorated and was sadly declared deceased on the scene.
Due to the nature of one of the occupants injuries a helicopter ambulance was activated to airlift the patient to hospital.
