Two men have escaped serious injury after the roof of a service station collapsed on three vehicles off Seeiso Road in Sharpville, Vereeniging.
Paramedics say they arrived on scene on Friday to find that a roof of a service station had collapsed on a small bus, a taxi and a light motor vehicle.
It is believed that the heavy rains and hail may have been a contributing factor in the cause of the collapse.
ER24’s Russel Meiring says the drivers and passengers had taken refuge in the nearby shop.
“Medics assessed the patients and found that two men, believed to be in their 20s, had sustained only minor injuries. Fortunately, no serious injuries or fatalities were found. The patients were treated and thereafter transported to Kopanong Provincial Hospital for further care.
Meiring say local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
