Durban - Four people were killed and seven injured in a collision involving three cars and a bus on the N2 on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast on Monday.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said the collision occurred on the coastal freeway between Umtentweni and Hibberdene. The cause of the crash was still being investigated.

“Netcare 911 paramedics, the fire department, traffic police and other arms of law enforcement arrived at the scene and found the roadway littered with accident debris and the twisted frames of the vehicles for about 60m. Some of the injured were still trapped in the wreckages,” he said.

“After triaging, it was found that four people had died, two sustained life threatening injuries and five were seriously injured.

"After the patients were treated at the scene by various services, they were transported to local hospitals,” he said.
