FOUR people were killed and two others were injured when a double cab crashed into a truck on Saturday. The accident took place on the south bound lane of the N2 just outside of KwaDukuza. According to IPSS Medical Rescue paramedic Paul Herbst one person was critical and was being attended to by advanced life support paramedics while the other was in a serious condition. The driver of the truck was not injured. Various emergency services responded to the scene. The exact cause of the accident is still under investigation. In a separate accident, two people were injured in a roll-over on the N2 neat the Ballito off ramp last week. Reports from the scene indicated that the vehicle was travelling along the south bound lane when it veered off the road and overturned, its twisted frame coming to rest in the north bound lane.

Netcare 911 paramedics arrived at the scene and found the injured at the side of the roadway. “After stabilising them on scene, medics transported the wounded to a local hospital for the care that they required,” said Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha.
