A head-on collision on the R40 at the Hilltop Pass between Nelspruit and Barberton has left one dead and six others injured. Exact detail to the cause of the accident is speculative, and will be a subject for police investigation.
Netcare 911 paramedics and the fire department arrived at the scene and found the roadway to be littered with accident debris and the twisted frames of the vehicles. After triaging, it was found that one person had tragically died due to the extensive injuries sustained while six others sustained injuries ranging from serious to minor.
After paramedics treated the injured at the scene, they transported them to a local hospital for the care that they required.
