Durban - Two people, including a toddler, were killed in an accident on the N2 near Gateway, Umhlanga on Friday night, paramedics said.

Netcare911 spokesperson Chris Botha said at around 20:00, paramedics responded to a scene where a vehicle had overturned.  

Paramedics found that the occupants had been ejected and they were located near the wreckage.

An adult male, aged 35, was declared dead at the scene and a three-year-old girl had sustained life threatening injuries. Despite resuscitation efforts from the paramedics, she succumbed to her injuries.

Botha said paramedics worked to stabilise a six-year-old-boy before he was transported to a Durban hospital for further treatment.

Authorities are investigating the circumstances surrounding the accident.
