Twin girls survive accident

SIX-YEAR-OLD twin girls survived an accident in which their mother was killed along with three other people - a woman and her three-year-old son and six-year-old daughter.

The woman's husband was also critically injured in the two-vehicle smash on the M4 Leo Boyd Highway near Ballito yesterday afternoon.

"The twin girls suffered serious injuries, while their mother died as a result of the crash," said Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeff Wicks. - Mhlaba Memela
