This afternoon Lowvelder got word that a plane had crashed near Machadodorp along the Elandshoek road.

According to Kabelo Ledwaba from CAA, five people were on board the plane, a Cessna 206, when it crashed.

The plane was completely engulfed with flames, except for the wings, after it had already hit the ground.

According to bystanders on the scene, the victims managed to drag themselves out of the burning plane and managed to make their way to the side of the road.

Here the seriously injured victims were found by farm workers who, in turn, notified their supervisor.
