Four men were seriously injured when the car they were travelling in collided with roadside concrete barriers in the intersection of the R102 and Inanda Roads, Newlands East, Durban at 21h00 on Saturday night.

When Netcare 911 Paramedics arrived at the scene they found the four occupants of the car lying at the roadside, it is believed that they were pulled from their vehicle by members of the public who witnessed the accident and rushed to their aid. The men were treated and stabilised at the scene before being transported to a local hospital for further medical care.
