Netcare911 says a two-year-old girl was ejected from the vehicle and found on the road when paramedics arrived on the scene.


She was stabilised and taken to a local hospital.


The four-year-old, who was still inside the vehicle, was pulled out by a bystander. 


"The paramedics then placed the four-year-old on a ventilator," says Netcare911 spokesperson Chris Botha.


He was later airlifted to a specialised hospital for urgent care.


The children weren't wearing seat-belts when the incident occurred.


Their mother, who only sustained minor injuries, was however wearing a seat-belt.


Emergency services say the occupants of the other vehicle escaped with no injuries.
