Paramedics say they arrived on the scene and found the trucks in the middle of the road.
JOHANNESBURG - Two people have been killed and another injured after three trucks collided and burst into flames on the N12 Highway in Springs, east of Johannesburg.
Paramedics say when they arrived on the scene last night, they found the two trucks in the middle of the road while ablaze.
It's understood the passengers were pulled out of the burning trucks by eyewitnesses at the scene.
ER24's Russel Meiring says the cause of the accident is being investigated.
"We found a man laying a few metres away from the truck and unfortunately the man had already succumbed to his burn wounds. The other patient was found on the scene and was taken to a nearby hospital for further assessment."
