It was a dark Christmas for two motorvehicle occupants in Carletonville on Monday, after the car they were travelling in crashed on the R501.
In addition, one man sustained minor injuries during the accident. Again, the question of seatbelts was brought under the spotlight.
“At approximately 03h00, ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene and found a man and woman had been ejected from one of the cars,” said ER24 spokesperson Annine Siddall on Monday.
“They were lying about 15 to 30 meters from the car,” added Siddall.
“Paramedics assessed the man and woman and found that nothing could be done to save their lives and they were declared dead on the scene,” she said.
The circumstances behind that accident are still being investigated by local police.
