A vehicle collision in the early hours of Sunday morning on the the M13 Freeway whilst going up Fields Hill in Pinetown, KwaZulu-Natal has left one person killed and three others seriously injured.

Rescue Care Paramedics arrived at the scene to find a vehicle pinned to the tree, with all four occupants severely entrapped.

"Whilst Paramedics worked to stabilise the injured in the vehicle the Durban Fire Department cut them free. The rescue took over two hours and once the driver was cut free he went into a state of Cardiac Arrest," Managing Director Garrith Jamieson said in a statement on Sunday.

Despite placing the driver on advanced life support, the man succumbed to his injuries on the scene.

The remaining three survivors were transported to a nearby hospital for further medical care.

Circumstances surrounding the incident are not yet known.
