Three people died on the scene of a serious accident in Pretoria West on Saturday evening.
Ambulance services were called to the scene at 20:30 in Von Hagen Street (near Rebecca Street), where two cars collided.
Spokesperson for Best Care Ambulance services Xander Loubser said two people in one vehicle and one in the other were declared dead on the scene.
“Three people were also seriously injured and transported to Kalafong and Steve Biko hospitals,” said Loubser.
The cause of the accident was unknown and would form part of a police investigation.
Loubser said the accident happened during a heavy rainstorm.
“This might have been a contributing factor that led to the fatal accident,” he said.
“We must urge all motorists to be extra cautious when driving in the rain. Decrease your speed and put your hazards on to make sure that you are visible to other drivers on the road.”
