Durban - Two people, including a toddler, were killed in an accident on the N2 near Gateway, Umhlanga on Friday night, paramedics said.
Netcare911 spokesperson Chris Botha said at around 20:00, paramedics responded to a scene where a vehicle had overturned.
Paramedics found that the occupants had been ejected and they were located near the wreckage.
An adult male, aged 35, was declared dead at the scene and a three-year-old girl had sustained life threatening injuries. Despite resuscitation efforts from the paramedics, she succumbed to her injuries.
