Johannesburg - A man was killed when he was shot on Lotus Drive in Isipingo, south of Durban, on Wednesday evening, paramedics said.

"A report from the scene indicates that the man was driving his vehicle along Lotus drive when he was shot," Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said.

Paramedics arrived on the scene and found the car had veered off the road and crashed into a gatepost.

The driver was found slumped over in his seat. 

"Tragically, he had died due to the extensive injuries that he sustained," Botha said.
