Witbank – A multiple vehicle pileup on the N4 freeway near the Ridge Casino, involving two trucks and a taxi, claimed the life of a passenger on Saturday morning.

Mpumalanga community safety spokesperson Joseph Mabuza said the accident had occurred shortly after midnight on Saturday morning.

He said it appeared that an articulated truck had lost its load and that the other truck and taxi had tried to swerve to avoid the debris on the road, when both vehicles overturned.

"A passenger was killed and another seriously injured from the taxi," he said.

Mabuza said the west bound lane remain closed until recovery has been finalised.
