Two motorists involved in an early morning head-on collision, that left their cars virtually unrecognisable, escaped the wreckage with only minor injuries.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Shawn Herbst said the crash happened on the R512 near Lanseria International Airport early on Friday morning.

He said Netcare 911 had responded to the collision at 6,33am on Friday after receiving reports that two cars had been involved in a serious crash.
