ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene to find the truck that was carrying sugar cane cuttings lying on its side. The driver was found outside the vehicle with a possible fractured ankle. Paramedics stabilised the patient and transported him to Pietermaritzburg Medi-Clinic in a stable condition for further medical treatment.
It is unclear what caused the driver to lose control but the necessary authorities were on the scene and would investigate the incident further.
