IN a bloody weekend on KwaZulu-Natal’s roads, nine people have been killed in a number of accidents.

One of those was an RTI officer who died in a crash in Nordale near Mtubatuba while on his way home with a colleague yesterday, said RTI spokesperson Zinhle Mngomezulu.

“The officer was approaching a bend when his vehicle collided into another car. Two people were injured in that crash, one of them another officer,” Mngomezulu told The Witness yesterday.

On Friday, one person died in a car crash on the N2 near Empangeni. A pedestrian was also killed on the P365/1 near Dundee when a truck crashed into him and two others. The two were taken to hospital in Dundee.

On Saturday, six people were killed in four accidents that happened throughout KZN, the bloodiest being a crash between a minibus taxi and a small car in Lenjane, Zululand which claimed three lives and left 16 injured. — Witness Reporter.
