Durban - One person was seriously injured after a vehicle slammed into the rear of a truck on the N2 north at the Winklespruit off ramp on Saturday.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said a report from the scene indicated that the highway was backing up with traffic from an earlier truck crash at the Doonside off ramp, when the vehicle travelling from Umkomaas to Durban, collided into the rear of a truck.

“Netcare 911 paramedics arrived at the scene and found the injured passenger lying next to the vehicle with serious injuries. After medics stabilised the man at the scene they transported him to an area hospital. The driver of the vehicle escaped from the crash uninjured,” he said.
