MAN KILLED & ANOTHER INJURED WHEN VEHICLE ROLLS
A man was killed and another injured this evening after their vehicle rolled off the N3 Hammersdale Highway in Hammersdale, KwaZulu-Natal.
ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene to find a light motor vehicle lying in the centre medium. Two bodies of males, believed to be in their 40’s, lay roughly 15 metres away. It appeared that both men had been ejected when the vehicle rolled multiple times.
On assessment, paramedics found that one of the men had succumbed to his multiple injuries. Unfotunately nothing more could be done for the patient and he was declared dead on scene. The second man was assessed and found to have sustained moderate injuries. He was treated by paramedics and thereafter transported to Rk Khan Hospital for further treatment.
It is believed tht the driver lost control of the vehicle, causing it to roll multiple times. Local authorities were on the scene to investigate the exact cause of the collision.
