JOHANNESBURG - A four-year-old girl is in a serious condition after she was injured in a road collision this morning.
Her parents and younger sister died in the crash in Kempton Park.
The family of four were traveling in a truck when it collided with a bridge pillar.
Ekurhuleni Emergency Services (EES) says the three were declared dead on the scene.
The child is receiving care at the Charlotte Maxeke Hospital.
EES spokesman Vincent Khoza said, "It seems like the driver lost control or fell asleep. The child was airlifted to Charlotte Maxeke Hospital as she suffered with a lot of head injuries."
