Durban - A 6-year-old girl was killed and five people were injured when a car overturned on the N3 near Pinetown on Sunday, KwaZulu-Natal paramedics said.

Crisis Medical spokesperson Kyle van Reenen said it remained unclear as to what caused the car to overturn.

"Paramedics arrived on scene to find the light motor vehicle on its side, blocking the roadway. 

"The young girl had been thrown from the car in the collision and was in a state of cardiac arrest. CPR was attempted, however after a lengthy effort, the child was sadly declared dead," Van Reenen said.

The other injured occupants of the car were treated at the scene.

Traffic was severely affected while the scene was cleared.
