It is alleged that the truck failed to brake at the corner of Thabo Mbeki and Retief streets and then crashed into five vehicles in front.

It is further alleged that the driver lost control of the vehicle and knocked and killed four pedestrians before crashing into a bank building. The vehicles and the building caught fire after the impact.

The truck driver and the passenger were burnt in the truck and one person from a burnt sedan was rushed to a nearby hospital after escaping with serious injuries.

Transport and Community Safety MEC Mavhungu Lerule-Ramakhanya has sent messages of condolences to the families of people who were killed in the accident.
