Durban – A man was killed and four other people sustained various injuries after a vehicle overturned on the N3 south between Umlaas and Camperdown on Sunday, paramedic services said.
ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said paramedics arrived on scene where they found a badly mangled wreck in the slow lane of the highway. Vermaak said it appeared that all of the occupants were ejected from the vehicle when it overturned.
“A man was found several meters away from the vehicle with fatal injuries. He was declared dead on the scene. Another man with a serious head injury was found near the vehicle. Three other people were found with moderate injuries on the scene.”
Vermaak said they were all stabilised and transported to Edendale and Northdale hospitals.
He added that all of the occupants are believed to be between 30 and 40 years old.
Local authorities attended the scene and will conduct an investigation, Vermaak said.
