Two Pietermaritzburg businessmen, Michael Stening-Smith and Vaughn Greene, escaped death by a whisker in the fatal multiple vehicle accident in Slangspruit on Tuesday.

Two people died in the pile-up of seven cars, which happened after a truck jumped a red robot on Reggie Gumede Road.

Several other people were taken to hospital for medical attention, including Stening-Smith.
