Two people died and five others were seriously injured following an accident on Frere road in Glenwood, Durban.
The accident happened late on Sunday, the cause of the collision is unclear at this stage, but the one vehicle, a VW Jetta, had allegedly veered out of control coming around a bend before colliding head on with a courier vehicle.
Paramedics say they found two occupants in the vehicle which had sustained various fatal injuries, both occupants were later declared dead at the scene.
ER24`s Andre Visser says the remaining three occupants from the Jetta were entrapped in the vehicle as bent rubber and metal had pinned the men in the vehicle.
Visser added that rescue workers from the local fire and rescue services used specialized hydraulic rescue equipment to cut the vehicle in order to free the occupants.
Visser says all of the men had sustained serious head injuries and received Advanced Life Support treatment at the scene before being transported to a nearby medical facility.
