N2 blaze: Smoke inhalation kills

2008-07-23 00:00

THICK smoke from a grassfire led to the death of a motorcyclist during a pile-up of more than 10 vehicles on both sides of the N2 near Umvoti on the north coast yesterday afternoon.

“I would like to appeal to motorists to not take a chance of driving through the thick smoke on the highway. They should rather wait for the smoke to clear and switch on hazard lights,” said Mbatha.
