CAPE TOWN - Motorists have been urged to exercise caution on the roads as holiday-makers head to their various destinations this long weekend.

Seven people were killed when a bakkie they were travelling in overturned in Verena, leaving five others, including the driver, injured.

In a separate incident, three people died when a truck crashed into the side of their light motor vehicle at the N12 and R50 split in Delmas.

ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring says: “A red light motor vehicle was found lying in the middle of the road and the truck had come to a stop a short distance from the car. The exact details of the incident are not yet known but local authorities were on the scene for further investigation.”
