Durban - A woman was killed and three people were injured when their car slammed into a tree on Musgrave Road, Durban, on Sunday morning.

Rescuecare spokesperson Garrith Jamieson said the car veered off the road near the St Thomas Road junction, mounted the curb, and struck a tree.

Jamieson went on to say that when paramedics arrived on the scene they found the front seat passenger badly trapped and she had suffered critical injuries. There was nothing paramedics could do for her.

"She was declared deceased on the scene,” he said.

The three other occupants were taken to hospital.

In another incident a taxi driver was killed and two of his passengers sustained slight injuries when the minibus hit a car in the Durban city centre.
