ONE person was seriously injured in a crash on the R102 near Compensation on the North Coast on Sunday.

According to Netcare 911’s Chris Botha paramedics arrived at the scene and found that two vehicles collided.

“After the injured were examined it was found that one person sustained serious injuries while two others escaped with minor injuries.

“Medics stabilised the injured at the scene before transporting them to a local hospital for the care that they required,” said Botha.

The accident is being investigated.

In a separate incident on Saturday morning Netcare 911 paramedics were called after a vehicle had overturned on the M4 between the Tongaat mouth and Ballito.

“Reports from the scene indicate that the security officers from Zimbali heard a hooter continuously going off and went to investigate,” said Botha.

When they arrived paramedics found that a vehicle had left the roadway and rolled into the sugar cane fields below the road level.

“Paramedics arrived at the scene and found a female aged 35 to have sustained moderate injuries.

“She was treated at the scene and then transported to a nearby hospital for the care that she required,” added Botha. - Supplied
