Durban - A truck driver was killed on Saturday on the M13 near the Acacia off-ramp in Hillcrest when his truck crashed down an embankment, paramedics said.

"Bystanders explained to paramedics that it appeared as if the Interlink truck suddenly started to swerve and ploughed through the Armco barrier next to the road before coming to rest against trees on the embankment," ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said.

Paramedics found the truck on its side with the driver, believed to be in his 30s, still trapped in the cab of the truck.

"He sustained fatal injuries and was declared dead on the scene," Vermaak said.
