3 dead in towing tragedy
Three men died when their car collided with a truck on Thursday on the N8 between Bloemfontein and Thaba-Nchu, police said.
Captain Elsa Gerber said an Opel Monza pulling a trailer carrying a mini-bus taxi crashed into the rear of a truck around 4pm.
"The trailer was too heavy for the car and it started to swerve making the driver lose control", said Gerber.
All three occupants of the car died on the scene and the driver of the truck was not injured.
A case of culpable homicide was opened.
