At least one person was reported dead from an accident on the R516 on Friday, 20 October.

The Waterberg Advanced Paramedics Assistance Group (APA) was on the scene of the reported head-on collision.

“We received an emergency call from the Community Policing Forum to say that there had been a serious accident on the R516 just before the N1.

“On arrival we found two vehicles had collided head-on. There was one person in the one vehicle and five people in the other,” APA spokesperson Andy Gill explained. 

The one person in one of the vehicles sustained no injuries. 

Some of those in the other vehicle sustained minor to severe injuries, while the fifth was declared dead on scene.

Gill said all patients were treated and stabilized on the scene by APA and the provincial ambulance services.

The patients were then transported to hospital.
