Two women have been killed when a truck flattened the vehicle in which they were driving, on the N1 highway travelling towards the Cape Town CBD.

The truck overturned after it took the M5 slipway too fast, causing its load to shift.

“We can confirm that two females have been killed in the incident,” said Cape Town Traffic Services spokesperson Searle Johannes.

The incident which took place at about 06:15 this morning has caused huge traffic delays within the city, leading to motorists having to take alternative routes.

“We have removed the container which was under the truck from the road and are trying to clear the N1,” said Johannes.

The container which flattened the car was carrying wine for export.
