One person has died and two other people are in a critical condition after the Bakkie they were traveling in left the road and rolled off the N3 Durban bound and N2 south bound interchange and landed on the N3 Durban bound freeway late yesterday evening.

Emergency personnel arrived on the scene and found the Bakkie on the N3 Durban bound in the middle lane with extensive damage to the vehicle and two occupants found strewn on the N3 and the other patient on the N2 North bound. All three occupants are believed to be in their mid to late twenties.

The patient on the N2 north bound was declared deceased on scene due to traumatic and fatal injuries he had sustained in the accident. The two other patients were in a critical condition after sustaining poly trauma injuries. Advanced Life Support intervention was performed on the patients before being transported to a nearby hospital for further medical care.

The necessary authorities were on scene and would investigate the accident further.
