Durban - A truck driver died when his heavy-duty vehicle overturned at Town Hill, on the N3 in Pietermaritzburg, on Monday afternoon, paramedics said.

Netcare 911 spokesman Chris Botha said the driver was trapped in the wreckage, and was declared dead on the scene.

KwaZulu-Natal road traffic spokesperson Zinhle Mngomezulu said the accident occurred shortly after the Hilton off ramp.

She said the truck, which belonged to Jabu Transport, had been transporting stone.

She said south-bound lanes of the N3 had remained open.
