THREE men escaped serious injury after the vehicle they were travelling in overturned on the N2 near Murchison on Sunday just before 4.30pm.

According to bystanders, the driver appeared to lose control of the vehicle, causing it to overturn.

Two passengers escaped unhurt while the driver sustained minor injuries.

Police spokesperson Captain Vincent Pandarum said the vehicle was allegedly travelling north towards Harding when the driver swerved to avoid colliding with another vehicle as he approached traffic lights.

“He lost control of the bakkie and it overturned, rolling down the embankment,” said Pandarum. He said an accident report was filed with the Port Shepstone SAPS.
