DURBAN, May 19 – A man believed to be in his 20s was killed and two other people were injured when two cars collided on the M4 northbound near Virginia in Durban just before 2am on Saturday morning, paramedics said.
Rescue Care paramedics arrived on the scene to find the two vehicles obstructing the northbound carriageway, Rescue Care spokesman Garrith Jamieson said.
“On assessment it was found that one person, believed to be the driver of the Toyota, had sustained major injuries. There was nothing paramedics could do for him and he was declared deceased on the scene. Two other occupants were treated on [the] scene by paramedics before being transported to various Durban hospitals for the further care that they required.”
The entire northbound carriageway was closed while emergency personal worked to clear the scene. At this stage, the cause of the crash was unknown, Jamieson said.
