Man killed, wife, son hurt in Joburg crash

Johannesburg - A man was killed and his wife and 6-year-old son were seriously injured in an accident in South Hills, Johannesburg, paramedics said on Monday.

The man, believed to be in his 30s, died on the scene at the Outspan and Heidelberg road intersection on Sunday night, ER24 spokesperson Russell Meiring said.

"A woman in her late 20s lay trapped in the passenger seat while her six-year-old child lay in his car seat in the back."

The two were treated on the scene before being taken to a nearby hospital. A truck was found nearby. It apparently collided with the car, which then hit the traffic light.

No occupants were found in the truck, Meiring said.
