Four people were killed, and three others injured after a three-vehicle crash on the R45 near Franschhoek in the Western Cape.ER24’s Russel Meiring said paramedics arrived on the scene on Sunday night to find the smashed vehicles scattered in the road.Meiring said two people were found lying motionless inside one of the vehicles. “Assessments showed that both had sustained numerous fatal injuries. Nothing could be done for them and they were declared dead on the scene,” Meiring added.According to Meiring in the second car, paramedics found a critically injured man, a critically injured 5-year-old girl and two other patients with moderate injuries. “Both the man and a woman lay trapped within the vehicle. Fire Services had to use specialized rescue tools to free the two trapped from the vehicle. “Once freed, paramedics treated the patients and provided the two critically injured with advanced life support interventions. The patients were later transported to nearby hospitals for urgent care,” Meiring said.One other patient from the third vehicle was reportedly assessed and found to have sustained only minor injuries.
