Durban - Two people died and two others were injured when the driver lost control of their car and crashed into a stationary truck in Redhill, north of Durban on Friday, paramedics said.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Nick Dollman said the fatal collision occurred at approximately 00:15 on Chris Hani Road (formerly known as North Coast Road).

"Eye witnesses alleged that the car lost control and crashed into a truck that was parked in the forecourt of a petrol station. The exact details of the incident and preceding events will form part of a police investigation," Dollman said.

Paramedics found that the impact of the crash had left two people dead, one in a critical condition and another with moderate to serious injuries, said Dollman.

"The injured were attended to by advanced life support paramedics and stabilised at the scene before being transported to hospital for further urgent medical intervention," said Dollman.
