A man and a woman, both believed to be in their 20s, were trapped in the car. Fire services had to use specialised tools to remove the roof of the car, allowing paramedics access to the patients. On assessment, paramedics found that both patients had sustained serious injuries.

Paramedics treated the patients and provided them with pain-relief medication before they were transported to Mediclinic Bloemfontein for further treatment. The cause of the crash was not yet known, Meiring said.
