Despite plans for roadblocks in Gauteng this long weekend, two people have lost their lives in two separate accidents in Kempton Park.
ER24’s Werner Vermaak said that in one incident, a pedestrian was hit by a vehicle.
The driver fled the scene.
"Sadly, there was nothing paramedics could do for him and he was declared dead," Vermaak said.
In the second incident, two vehicles collided resulting in the death of one person.
"Upon assessment, paramedics found that the driver was trapped underneath the overturned vehicle. He was declared dead on the scene. Three other people were found with minor injuries on the scene and they were taken to hospital for further care."
