Johannesburg - A man was killed on Monday afternoon when his truck overturned on the N3 near Liberty Mall in Pietermaritzburg, paramedics said.

The truck driver was thought to have lost control of the vehicle, which clipped a taxi and a tanker before overturning, said Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha.

It came to rest in Armitage Road, next to the highway, he said.

The truck driver, who was trapped in the vehicle, was declared dead on the scene.

The other vehicles were not badly damaged and their occupants were not hurt, said Botha.

Police were investigating.
