Man dies in N3 truck crash
Durban - A man died and another was critically injured when their truck overturned near Peacevale in KwaZulu-Natal on Tuesday, paramedics said.
"ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene and found the truck lying on its side and the cars it was carrying scattered across the freeway and down an embankment," said ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks.
A passenger in the truck died. The driver was critically injured in the crash on the N3 to Durban at 05:00, he said.
Banks said both of the men, who were foreigners, were found outside the truck's cabin. The driver was taken to the RK Khan Hospital.
He was thought to have lost control of the vehicle in wet weather, and it crashed through the Armco barrier onto the Durban-bound carriageway.
