Durban - Three people have been killed and three injured after the bakkie in which they were travelling rolled on the N3 in Pietermaritzburg on Wednesday morning, ER24 paramedics said.

"All three critically injured patients, that were treated on scene, unfortunately succumbed to their injuries while in hospital," ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said in a statement.

He said that paramedics had arrived on the scene just after 6:45 and found all six occupants of the bakkie lying on the road after they were ejected from the vehicle when it rolled numerous times.

Three of the people were found to have minor injuries, but three others were critically hurt and taken to various hospitals for further treatment. However, they subsequently died during the course of the morning.

A further investigation into the crash is underway.
