Rescue Care Paramedics were delayed proceeding to an accident on the N2 North bound near Ridgeview Road Bridge just after 2:30pm today.
The N2 south bound carriageway was blocked by protestors who had started fires along the entire freeway. They were also throwing objects at vehicles.
A second Rescue Care ambulance was then dispatched from the South of Durban to attend to the accident scene.
Once the second ambulance had arrived on the scene it was found that a single vehicle had somehow lost control and collided with the armco barrier before it overturned.
Two occupants of the vehicle had sustained injuries and were stabilised on scene before being transported by Rescue Care to a nearby hospital for the further care that they required.
At this stage it is unclear what caused the single vehicle to lose control and crash however the necessary authorities were on scene and will be investigating further.
