Johannesburg - Two people died and four others were injured in an accident in Durban on Sunday, paramedics said.

"The accident occurred on the N2 highway near the Edwin Swales offramp," Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said.

He said that a car travelling south crossed over the middle island and hit another car travelling on the other side of the highway,

"The impact was so bad that the engines from both cars actually fell off. I have not seen an accident this bad in a very long time. The cars must have been travelling at quite a speed," Botha said.

The cars involved was a VW Jetta and a BMW.

The injured people were taken to hospital.

Two were in a critical condition and two others were in a serious condition.
