ON Friday, 8 July at 3.09pm, Netcare 911 paramedics responded to a collision on the N2 south just before the Scottburgh off-ramp.
Reports from the scene indicate that vehicles were travelling south when a Mercedes-Benz collided with a taxi, spun out and hit a Toyota SUV on the passenger side. Exact detail as to what caused the initial crash and preceding events will form part of the SAPS investigation.

“Paramedics found the damaged taxi in the breakdown lane while the crumpled remains of the Mercedes and the Toyota was found about 50 metres apart in the centre median,” said Chris Botha, Netcare 911 media liaison officer.

“After the injured were examined it was found that an elderly lady from the Toyota had died on impact. Two people sustained serious injuries while six escaped with minor injuries. Medics treated the injured at the scene before they transported them to various hospitals,” said Botha.
