Durban – Two men were killed on Saturday when a bakkie and truck collided head-on on the R33 in Albert Falls, KwaZulu-Natal.

ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said paramedics arrived on the scene in the early hours of the morning. A truck and bakkie were found on the side of the road, both badly damaged, Meiring said.

"On inspection, paramedics found the bodies of two men lying a few metres away from the bakkie. Assessments showed that both men, believed to be in their 30s, had sustained numerous fatal injuries.

"Unfortunately, nothing more could be done for either patient and they were declared dead on scene. The driver of the truck was assessed and found to have escaped injury."

Meiring said it was believed that the driver of the bakkie lost control, causing the vehicle to veer into the path of the truck.

Local authorities were on scene for further investigations.
