Johannesburg - Two people have been killed after their car crashed into a house in Pietermaritzburg, South frica on Friday morning, said paramedics.
Two others were injured in the incident, said ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring.
"When ER24 paramedics, along with other services, arrived on scene, they found a wrecked light motor vehicle stationary against a collapsed residence wall," said Meiring.
The four occupants were lying motionless inside the car.
"Paramedics found that the male driver had already succumbed to his multiple fatal injuries. Three other patients in the vehicle had sustained critical injuries in the collision," said Meiring.
Paramedics removed the patients from the car and administered advanced life support before transporting them to the hospital.
One the men, however, died upon arrival at the hospital.
"Fortunately no one from the house sustained any injuries," said Meiring.
The cause of the crash was unclear.
