ONE man is in a serious condition and three other people were injured after two trucks collided on the N2 northbound near Durban yesterday.

ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks said ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene near the Clare Road bridge “to find an articulated truck up against the concrete barrier with the cabin completely disintegrated”.

He said that “just a few metres away a second truck was found up against the concrete barrier with the front part of the truck damaged”.

The driver of the first truck, who is in a serious condition, was found lying at the back of the trailer and had suffered possible neck, back and hip injuries. The driver and two occupants of the second truck were found seated on the floor in front of the truck, with minor to moderate injuries.
