BENONI: ONE PERSON DIED, 2 OTHERS WERE INJURED IN REAR-END COLLISION ON N12

A woman was killed and two others injured this afternoon when a light motor vehicle rear-ended another on the N12 westbound near the Tom Jones exit in Benoni.

ER24 paramedics, along with another service, arrived on the scene and found both light motor vehicles in the slow lane of the highway.

Upon closer inspection, paramedics found the body of a woman in her 30’s lying trapped inside of the front motor vehicle. Unfortunately, the woman showed no signs of life.

Nothing could be done for the woman and she was later declared dead on the scene. Four other people from the second vehicle were found walking around on the scene.

Paramedics assessed the patients and found that two had sustained moderate injuries while the remaining two escaped injury.

The patients were treated for their injuries and thereafter transported to Life Glynwood Hospital for further treatment. The cause of the collision is not yet known but local authorities were on scene for further investigations.
