Johannesburg - A man was killed and three others seriously injured after a car smashed into the back of a truck, in the Bluff area of KwaZulu-Natal, in the early hours of Friday morning.

Paramedics arrived at Edwin Swales Drive and Chalmers Road, where the accident took place, to find a driver trapped in the wreckage, according to a statement from Ceron Lennox of Rescue Care Paramedics.

The Durban Fire Department had to use the Jaws of Life to cut the driver free from the vehicle. He was believed to be in his 20s.

Lennox said the man had sustained major injuries, and was declared dead on the scene.

Rescue Care Advanced Life Support Paramedics stabilised three seriously injured passengers, before transporting them to different hospitals in Durban for further treatment.

Lennox said that there were no updates on their health.
