Six people have been burnt beyond recognition after a head-on collision between Giyani and Polokwane in Limpopo this Sunday (today) morning.

Reports say both vehicles caught fire after the crash near Dingamazi village and police say none of the occupants in the two vehicles survived the crash.

Police spokesperson Moatshe Ngoepe said police in Giyani are investigating a case of culpable homicide following the motor vehicle collision in the early hours of this morning.

“It is alleged that two vehicles collided and burnt with all occupants inside on a road between Polokwane and Giyani near Dingamazi village. A total of six people including the drivers perished. All the deceased are still unknown at this stage,” he said.

This is the second serious accident in Limpopo.
