ON Sunday afternoon, 27 March, Net- care 911 paramedics received a call to an accident on the N2 south near Dickens Road. Reports indicate that a beer truck travelling south lost its load.

“Paramedics arrived at the scene and found beer crates and bottles littering the south-bound lanes. North-bound traffic had come to a stop with people stopping at the accident, causing traffic to back up for kilometres,” said Chris Botha, media liaison officer - Netcare 911.
Police arrived at the scene and had their hands full to contain it. The south-bound carriage way will remain closed until all the debris can be removed.

Exact detail as to how it happened will remain a subject for police investigation. - Supplied.
