Johannesburg - Three people were freed from the wreck of their bakkie after a multiple-vehicle collision on the N3 in Pinetown on Tuesday, paramedics said.

The three were trapped under a truck trailer but had since been freed, said ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks.

Nine other people were injured and taken to hospital after three trucks, two bakkies and a car collided on the freeway in the direction of Pietermaritzburg.

It was not yet clear what caused the accident.

The freeway was closed with only one lane open for traffic.
