SIX people were killed in an accident involving three cars and a motorbike on the N3 northbound near the Hammarsdale turn-off at about 7.30 pm yesterday.

Four other people were badly injured.

Traffic Department spokesperson Kwanele Ncalane said one of the cars was so badly damaged that it was difficult to tell what make it was. Also involved were a Mercedes Benz, a BMW and a motorbike.

“The MEC [Willies Mchunu] is saddened by this accident. Not long ago we were on the N3 monitoring a roadblock.”

Since Thursday, accidents on KZN’s roads have claimed more than 25 lives.
