Seven people were injured on Saturday when a truck collided with five vehicles on the Sir Louries Pass, near Cape Town, paramedics said.
The truck’s brakes allegedly failed causing it to plough through other vehicles, said ER24’s Russel Meiring.
Three people were critically injured. Two of them had to be freed from the wreckages with the jaws-of-life, while one was airlifted to hospital.
Paramedics treated patients for their injuries before transporting them to nearby hospitals.
The accident was being investigated. SAPA
