“There are six people who died at the scene; two were from another vehicle, while another four were also from another vehicle that was involved. Two other people who sustained serious injuries were rushed to a nearby hospital in Emalahleni. The cause of the crash remains unclear at this stage but reckless and negligent driving could not be ruled out.”
