JOHANNESBURG - Seven people have been killed in a head on collision on the N12 between Christiana and Warrenton in the North West.

All seven were burnt beyond recognition after their vehicles burst into flames.

Brigadier Thulani Ngubane says a VW travelling from Warrenton to Christiana allegedly had a burst tyre and swerved onto the oncoming traffic lane colliding with a bakkie.

He says police are still investigating.

"The deceased will then be identified through a DNA process to assist the families to be able to identify their loved ones."
