Durban – A seven-month-old infant, a fifty-two-year-old female and a sixty-three-year-old male have all sadly lost their lives in a horror crash on the N2 near Nandi Drive.
Life Response Emergency Care Practitioners arrived on the scene of the southbound carriageway, to find that a Toyota Hilux had veered off the roadway, smashing into a steel support structure of an overhead signboard.
Sadly there was nothing that could be done to help the infant and the female and male, they were declared deceased on the arrival of paramedics.
Five other occupants of the vehicle were found to have suffered injuries, with three of them in a critical condition.
Advanced Life Support intervention was needed to stabilize them, before they were transported by ambulances, to various nearby receiving medical facilities for further definitive care.
At this stage, the cause of the collision is unclear and will form the subject of a South African Police Services investigation.
