Man dies, 13 hurt in N3 crash
Pietermaritzburg - A man was killed and 13 people were injured, seven of them seriously, when their bakkie overturned on the N3 near Howick, KwaZulu-Natal, paramedics said.
"Somehow the driver lost control, went up an embankment and then rolled down. Everyone was ejected from the vehicle," said ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks.
The accident happened at around 09:30 on Wednesday morning in the northbound lane, about 2km from the Midmar Dam offramp, he said.
Paramedics arrived to find a man, in his late 20s or early 30s, had died.
Of the seven people seriously injured, five needed advanced life support. The other five people suffered minor injuries, Banks said.
