Johannesburg - One person died and three were injured when the car they were travelling in, landed in a storm water drain near Chesterville, KwaZulu-Natal paramedics said on Sunday.

ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks said three men managed to escape their car after it landed in the drain on Saturday evening, but one person was trapped in the car and killed.

It was unclear what caused the car to lose control but the location was famous for cars going into the channel, Banks said.

The injured were rushed to King Edward hospital for further treatment.
