Truck hits car in emergency lane
Durban - One person died and two others were injured when a car and truck collided in Paradise Valley on Wednesday, KwaZulu-Natal paramedics said.
The car driver apparently stopped to change a flat tyre in the emergency lane when a truck hit the vehicle, Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said.
The jaws-of-life were used to free the injured from the wreckage and they were taken to hospital.
A male passenger in the car died.
It was not known if the truck driver was injured.
