A man was killed late last night when his taxi crashed off the M13 near the N3, down an embankment in Hillcrest, KwaZulu Natal.
ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene and found other services already in attendance.
A taxi was found lying at the bottom of a long embankment.
Paramedics made their way down to the vehicle, where they found a man lying trapped in the driver’s seat of the vehicle.
The man was assessed and found to have sustained several serious injuries and showed no signs of life. Unfortunately, nothing could be done for the man and he was declared dead.
Fire services had to later use the jaws-of-life equipment to free the deceased man from the vehicle.
The exact cause of this incident is not yet known but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
