Shortly after 2pm paramedics from ER24 arrived on the N14 in Kathu towards Olifantshoek where they found one person ejected from the vehicle and another still severely trapped in the vehicle.
The third occupant of the vehicle was found near the wreckage. It is believed that he climbed out of the vehicle shortly after the incident.
A woman on the scene, believed to be the wife of one of the critically injured men, explained to paramedics that she was driving behind the vehicle when she suddenly saw black smoke and saw the vehicle spun out of control.
They were on their way home from a funeral.
Paramedics had to call Rural Metro Rescue to assist with the extrication of the critically injured man. Several rescue tools were used to free him from the wreckage.
He sustained several severe lacerations, fractures and a possible head injury.
The man that was ejected from the vehicle was also in a critical condition and treated for multiple injuries. The third occupant was found with moderate injuries.
They were all treated on the scene and rushed to Lenmed Hospital for further medical care.
The exact cause of the incident is not yet known. Local authorities attended the scene.
