A man and a woman were killed on Sunday when they crashed into a bridge on the N3 in Paradise Valley, west of Durban, while travelling on a motorcycle, according to KwaZulu-Natal paramedics.

The driver, a man in his 50s, was found to be in cardiac arrest and he died after attempts to resuscitate him failed, said Rescue Care spokesperson Garrith Jamieson.

The female passenger was flung over a bridge and landed in a ravine about 20 to 30 metres below.

Jamieson said police search and rescue teams recovered her body and were investigating the circumstances that led to the crash.
