One person was killed and another injured when an articulated truck collided with a car on the N17 highway near Kinross towards Leandra on Thursday afternoon.

Initial reports suggest that the car dangerously overtook another vehicle and collided head-on with a truck.

The truck continued to push the car until both vehicles left the road and ended up in a small small stream near the highway.
