KwaZulu-Natal Transport MEC Willies Mchunu said four police officers had also died in a head-on collision in Harding at the weekend.
He said road crashes were a "menace to society".
"As we enter the festive season holidays, we are again urging citizens, drivers, pedestrians, bikers and cyclists to respect road traffic rules strictly and to drive cautiously.
"It is possible to have an accident-free province and country, if only we put our individual and collective consciousness to it."
Mchunu said the department would launch the province's festive season safety campaign at the Mooi River Toll Plaza on December 9.
