One person is dead and three other people have sustained minor injuries after the bakkie they were travelling in over turned on the N3 Durban bound just before Hammersdale this evening.
ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene, to find a bakkie lying on its roof in the left hand lane of the freeway. One person was found lying in the road and had suffered fatal injuries. He was declared deceased on the scene. the driver and two other passengers had sustained minor injuries and were assessed by ER24 and
VEMA. They were transported to a nearby hospital for further medical care.
It is unclear how the driver lost control but it is believed that they came around the bend on the N3 and may have had mechanical problems causing the driver to lose control and collided into the Armco barrier before rolling down the freeway.
The necessary authorities were on the scene and would be investigating the incident further.
