Three men were killed in a head-on collision between two vehicles outside Welkom in the Free State on Tuesday, paramedics said.
Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said paramedics arrived at the scene and found the wreckage of one car in the middle of the road.
"Remnants of the other car were found in the veld; the occupants from both vehicles were still trapped in the wreckages."
Botha said one man was travelling alone in one car and the other two men who died were in the second car.
The cause of the accident was not immediately known.
