ER24 paramedics attended to an accident scene on the M3 in KwaZulu Natal this morning whereby a person died. 

A large truck carrying paper crashed down an embankment after crashing into a vehicle. 

ER24 Spokesperson Vanessa Jackson said when paramedics arrived they found a passenger who was trapped in the cabin of the truck.  He suffered extensive injuries.

“At the back of the truck paramedics found another passenger who was flung out of the wreckage and trapped underneath the truck with only his arm that was visible” Jackson added.

ER24 Spokesperson Vanessa Jackson said it took paramedics 4hours to remove the man from the wreckage but sadly his condition rapidly deteriorated and they had to place him on life support, and he was transported to hospital in a critical condition. Sadly he died in hospital due to extensive injuries he sustained.

The exact details of the cause of the accident will be the subject of a police investigation.
