Durban – A woman has died after crashing her motorcycle into a concrete barrier on the N3 near Hammarsdale, just outside Durban, on Thursday.

ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said the woman's husband, who was riding in front of his wife, had apparently not noticed the accident and was alerted by fellow motorists.

Meiring said paramedics, along with provincial emergency services, arrived on the scene and found the body of the woman, believed to be in her 50s, lying on the opposite highway in the fast lane.

"It is understood that the woman lost control of her motorcycle, causing it to collide with the concrete barrier and flinging her into the opposite highway. On assessment, paramedics found that the woman had already succumbed to her injuries," said Meiring.

Authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
