Head-on: Two women die in Phoenix crash

2011-06-16 00:00

A HEAD-ON collision on Phoenix’s Northern Drive in Durban yesterday afternoon claimed the lives of two women and left a third fighting for her life in hospital.

The cause of the accident and the series of events leading up to it remain unclear and will form the subject of a South African Police Force investigation.

In a separate incident, a man is fighting for his life in a Durban hospital after being hit by a truck in Sarnia Road last night.

It is believed that a truck came hurtling down Sarnia road at around 7.30 pm. The driver lost control at the intersection with Sea View Road, drove over a traffic light and then collided with the pedestrian. Netcare 911 paramedics placed the victim on a ventilator and transported him to the King Edward hospital for the care that he required.
