BMWs, Mercs destroyed after truck crash
Johannesburg - A truck crashed and caught fire on the N2 near Mthatha on Friday, destroying the VW Polos, BMWs, and S-class Mercedes Benzes it was carrying.
All the cars on the truck, and the truck itself, were destroyed in the fire caused by an accident, Eastern Cape health spokesperson Sizwe Kupelo said.
A car attempted to overtake the truck, its driver lost control and it rolled several times. The truck then crashed into the car. Two bystanders had a "miraculous" escape.
He estimated the damage at between R4 million and R5 million.
"It is a miracle that there were no serious injuries," Kupelo said.
