Two men have died in two separate incidents on roads around Kempton Park, east of Johannesburg on Saturday night.

In the first incident a twenty-seven year old man died after being ejected from his vehicle on Elektron Road. ER24 spokesperson Ineke van Huysteen says paramedics were alerted to the accident by a local patrol vehicle that came across the scene.

“The man was lying in the road. Unfortunately there was nothing paramedics could do and he was declared dead. In a separate incident a male pedestrian was killed after being knocked down by a vehicle on the R21 in Pamona in Kempton Park. Unfortunately the man showed no signs of life. The exact circumstances surrounding the incidents were not yet known to our paramedics but local authorities were on the scene for further investigation.”

In another accident, at least fifteen people, among them children, have been injured when the taxi they were travelling in rolled multiple times near Carnival City in Boksburg, east of Johannesburg on Sunday morning. ER24 spokesperson Ineke van Huysteen says paramedics were on their way to another incident when they came across the collision.

“The taxi was lying on its right hand side and most of the patients had managed to get out. Upon further assessment it was found that most patients sustained injuries ranging from minor to serious. ER24 transported a 3 year old girl who sustained serious injuries to the hospital. Her family was also transported by ER24 and all five of them sustained minor injuries. The exact circumstances surrounding the incident were not yet known to our paramedics.”
