Six die in Durban crash
Durban - Six people died and two others were injured when a vehicle collided with a tanker on the R61 on Friday near Margate in KwaZulu-Natal, paramedics said.
"Six adults sustained serious injuries and died before the arrival of emergency service personnel," Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeff Wicks said.
A man and woman were carefully extricated from the crumpled remains of the car. The man was critically injured, Wicks said.
"Common cause information indicates the car and the tanker were travelling in opposite directions when they collided."
The car reportedly spun out of control and came to rest against a roadside barrier.
The cause of the accident is unclear and would be investigated by police, Wicks said.
