A man has been decapitated after apparently falling from a vehicle and being struck by a number of other cars on the N2, north of Durban, before paramedics arrived on Sunday evening.

Crisis Medical paramedics said a man, believed to be 30 years old, was declared dead by paramedics earlier on Sunday.

"Emergency services were called to the northbound carriageway near the Kwamashu Highway interchange for reports of a pedestrian vehicle collision," Crisis Medical said in a statement.

On arrival, Crisis Medical paramedics found the "severely dismembered remains" of a man in the centre median of the highway.

Reports suggested the man fell from a moving vehicle before being struck several times by passing motorists.

Police were on the scene and would investigate the circumstances leading to the man’s death.
