Durban - A man was killed and four others injured after a smash on the N3 near the Shongweni off-ramp on the outskirts of Durban on Sunday.

ER24 spokesperson Russell Meiring said that paramedics arrived at the scene and found two cars on the side of the road.

It is understood that one car had broken down and, while at the roadside, had been struck from behind by the other.

He said both had been badly damaged.

"Paramedics found the body of a man lying in the slow lane of the road. Unfortunately, the man had already succumbed to his multiple, fatal injuries. Nothing could be done for the patient and he was declared dead on the scene," he said.

"Four other men were found on the scene. Paramedics assessed the four patients and found that they had sustained injuries ranging from minor to moderate," Meiring added.

The four were transported to hospital by ambulance.
