Lucky escape as plane crashes onto car

Pretoria - Two men died and three others were slightly injured on Wednesday night after a small plane crash landed on the R55 near Centurion.

The plane is believed to have been from the training school nearby.

ER's Vanessa Jackson said when paramedics arrived, the small aircraft was in pieces and the plane had also crashed into a car that had been travelling on the road at the time.

The two men who had been in the plane were declared dead at the scene.

The men in the car suffered only minor injuries, she said.

"After thorough assessment by paramedics, they decided that they'd leave the scene with private transport and would see further medical attention at a later stage if it was necessary."

She said the Centurion-bound lane would remain closed while investigations were underway.
