A Durban woman is feeling grateful after members of the public pulled her and her seven-year-old son from the wreckage after a car crash.
Rheem Maharaj, from Windermere in Durban, was involved in a serious car accident on Wednesday while on her way to drop off her son at school.
“I was going up Trematon drive and I could see a blue Toyota Hilux coming on the side of me [along Burman Drive]. I said there was no way he was not going to stop, but he didn’t,” she recalled. “As the car was about to hit us, I closed my eyes and tried to swerve and avoid it but it was too late. The car hit us directly, it was a full impact on the driver’s side.”
