Durban – A seven-year-old boy and a woman were killed when a rock was apparently thrown onto the car they had been travelling in on the N2 highway between Tongaat and Ballito, north of Durban, authorities said on Thursday.

IPSS Medical Rescue spokesperson Paul Herbst alleged that the rock had been thrown from a nearby bridge on Wednesday night.

However, police said it was unclear whether it had been thrown, or if it fell.
