SIX people were killed in two accidents on the province’s roads at the weekend.

A spokesperson for the Road Traffic Inspectorate, Zinhle Mngomezulu, told The Witness that two people died and four were injured when a BMW they were travelling in rolled on the R612 near Umzinto Prison on Saturday.

The four people were taken to G.J. Crookes Hospital in Scottburgh.

Also on Saturday, four people were killed in a head-on collision on the P46/1 near Vryheid.

A vehicle overtaking a number of cars collided with a car coming from the opposite direction. All four occupants in one vehicle died, while two from the other were taken to hospital with injuries, Mngomezulu said.

Yesterday, a 30-year-old motorist was stopped on the N2 near Park Rynie for driving at 206 km/h. He was arrested and released on R3 000 bail.

He would appear in the Scottburgh Magistrate’s Court today, said Mngomezulu.
