JOHANNESBURG – A two-year-old child was killed in a collision on the N1 Highway before Hammanskraal on Sunday.

This is just a few metres from where a taxi and a bakkie collided on Saturday, killing 16 people.

Netcare911's Chris Botha says, β€œIt seems an SUV rear-ended a bakkie that was transporting people. Four children were injured. Three children are in a critical condition and one has sustained serious injuries.”

In a separate incident outside Potchefstroom, a mother was killed and her three children injured during a collision on the N12.
