Road Accident

Families Left Traumatized After Horrific Accident

Terrible accident on the Sonstraal road.

Life's lost as disaster struck.


Around 21.40 Saturday evening, the DFW emergency control received report of a 2 vehicle accident on the Sonstraal road.

Immediately all services were alerted and EMS metro responded, as well as SAPS, paarl fire, and 2 DFW EFAR medics. ( emergency first aid responders).

On site, a catastrophic scenario was found.

2 passenger vehicles collided head on, a ford fiesta and Golf, killing 2 on impact and leaving others to be serious injured.

The teams all did their very best to save the patients and as soon as the ambulance arrived the injured were taken to hospital.

The Sonstraal road saw many deadly accidents over the last year, as traffic intensified and the darkness ( absence of streetlights) or speed limitations, play a dubious role.

Police will investigate the circumstances.

We send our condolences to the family of the deceased and we hope the injured will recover fully.

A great thanks to Ems metro who are our partners, police and our DFW crew ( kade Loubser and Pedrie Pretorius).
