Durban - Three people have been killed in three separate accidents in KwaZulu-Natal on Saturday evening, paramedics said.

A pedestrian was killed at around 20:30 when he was hit by an articulated truck, and apparently three other cars, on the N2 south near the M7, said ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks.

The man was believed to be in his 40s and declared dead on the scene.

In a separate accident, a woman was killed when the driver in the car she was travelling in lost control on Westville Road in Westville.

"The driver lost control negotiating a bend and rolled the car numerous times," said Banks.

"We arrived on the scene and found the car on its side."

The driver was able to get out the car, but the woman believed to be the driver's wife was trapped inside.

A tow truck was used to put the car on its correct side, and after the woman was assessed, having suffered traumatic injuries, was shortly afterwards declared dead on the scene.

Banks said the woman was in her 30s.

Elsewhere, a 28-year-old was killed after losing control of their vehicle at around 23:30 and driving into a large pole.

The car was ripped in half and after the driver was pulled out the car by paramedics after they arrived on the scene, he was declared dead on the scene.

The accident took place where Walter Gilbert Road meets NMR Avenue in Durban.
