“Unfortunately there was nothing paramedics could do for the driver of the BMW and he was declared dead on the scene. Paramedics could also not do anything to help a man and a woman in a bakkie involved in the collision and they were declared dead on the scene.”

The cause of the collision was not yet known, Siddall said.
