Four people are in a serious condition after a head on collision took place on Edendale road near French road this afternoon.
Emergency personnel arrived on the scene to find two light motor vehicles involved in a collision. One vehicle was lying in the centre medium on its roof while the second one was still in the road facing towards Edendale Hospital.
Four patients were found lying on the floor outside the over turned vehicle. They had sustained multiple fractures and need Advanced Life Support Intervention. They were placed on specialised equipment before been transported to Edendale Hospital in a serious condition for further medical care.
It is believed that the Nissan was travelling towards Pietermaritzburg when the driver lost control and went through the centre medium and collided head on with the Toyota before over turning onto the island. The driver of the Nissan could not be found on the scene but the necessary authorities were on the scene and would investigate the accident further.
