N3: accidents claim two lives

2011-05-30 00:00

ONE person died and another sustained minor injuries in a collision on the N3 north, just after Market Road in Pietermaritzburg, late on Saturday.

It is believed that one of the drivers may have been reversing in the right-hand lane to get back on to the Market Road on-ramp when the second vehicle came into the blind corner and collided with it.

In another accident a pedestrian was knocked down by a bakkie and killed on the N3 near Nottingham Road while trying to cross from the slow lane to the fast lane.
