One dead, three injured in Durban head-on crash

DURBAN, May 5 – One person was killed and three others were injured in a head-on collision between a bakkie and a car on Newlands West Drive near Fosa Road in Durban on Friday night, paramedics said.

Rescue Care paramedics arrived on the scene just after 8pm to find the entire road closed, Rescue Care spokesman Garrith Jamieson said on Saturday.

“Two vehicles had collided in a head-on collision. A male believed to be in his 20s was severely trapped, and paramedics assessed him and found that he had sustained major injuries. Unfortunately there was nothing paramedics could do and he was declared deceased on the scene.”

Three occupants from the second vehicle had sustained moderate injuries and were stabilised on the scene before being transported to nearby hospitals for the further care that they required. At this stage the cause of the crash was unknown, Jamieson said.
