breaking: 3 WOMEN DIE IN CRASH!

Three Mpumalanga women have died following a crash between a sport utility and a sedan this morning (09 August)

It is suspected that one of the drivers was attempting to overtake before the collission happened. Both vehicles were coming from Mbombela direction.

According to Mpumalanga community safety spokesman, Moeti Mmusi, after the collission the vehicles overturned on the bridge on the side of the road.

"The three perished at the scene. It is three females and they were all passengers. Two of the deceased were passengers in the SUV while the third victim was an occupant in the  sedan.

The seriously injured driver of the SUV was rushed to kiaat Hospital in Mbombela," he said

The driver of the involved sedan was still missing at the scene.

Earlier indications are that the drivers of both vehicles seemingly lost control after colliding and this led to vehicles veering off the road and overturning.

The investigation into the crash is underway.

Mpumalanga community safety spokesman MEC, Gabisile Shabalala said  the crash is one of many deadly crashes that could have been avoided had greater care been taken.

She has therefore urged motorists to avoid driving while they are tired or drunk.

"We need to bring to an end needless loss of lives on our roads. It is unfortunate for us to be losing lives at this rate due crashes that could be avoided." She said
