Johannesburg - A man was killed and five others injured on Sunday in a truck accident in Pietermaritzburg, said paramedics.

 ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson said the truck crashed into another stationery truck and a bakkie before it hit the wall of a construction site along the N3 in the vicinity of Liberty Mall.

The truck caught fire as it crashed into the first vehicle and eventually all three were completely destroyed in the blaze.

The driver was flung from the truck and he died on the scene.

Jackson said two passengers and three construction workers sustained moderate injuries.
