Four people have died following a horrific head-on collision between a Toyota hatchback and a Corsa bakkie on the N12 highway this morning. 

ER24 paramedics received a call out to the scene approximately eight kilometers before the Cartonville, Fochville interchange and found that a Toyota had collided head-on with a bakkie. They could see that the collision was severe as both vehicles had sustained substantial damage. The Corsa bakkie had veered off of the road after the initial impact. 

The single driver in the Toyota was entrapped in the vehicle and had sustained various fatal injuries. All three occupants from the bakkie had been ejected from the vehicle and were found to have also sustained various fatal injuries, bringing the total fatalities on the scene to four with no survivors. 

The N12 highway was closed for traffic while Emergency Medical Personnel and local law enforcement officials attended the incident. The cause of the collision will be investigated by the appropriate authority.
