Fatal crash as matrics head to farewell
Durban - A matric pupil was killed on Friday night and three others injured when their car overturned near Umlazi, south of Durban, paramedics said.
Their car was hit on the side by another vehicle on Mkhazini Road in the Fulweni area, Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said.
"The pupils were apparently travelling to a matric farewell event, but their destination was not known."
The 18-year-old male pupil died on the scene. Another was critically injured, while two others escaped with minor injuries.
They were taken to Mshiyeni Hospital.
The cause of the accident was not immediately clear, Botha said.
