FOUR people were killed in a horror accident that occurred on the N2, about 45 km from Kokstad near Staffords Post, yesterday.

According to department of Transport spokeswoman Zinhle Mngomezulu, the four killed are believed to be from Pietermaritzburg.

Mngomezulu said the accident allegedly occurred when a trailer uncoupled from its horse and swerved on to the opposite side of the road, colliding head-on with a Nissan Almera.

She said each of the four people travelling in the Nissan at the time were trapped for almost two hours in the vehicle wreckage before emergency and rescue personnel could free them, but all four were declared dead at the scene.

Mngomezulu said at this stage it has not been established where they were travelling to or any other information about them, but confirmed that the vehicle had an NP registration plate..
