ER24 paramedics responded to an
accident scene where by a man died.
It is believed that his vehicle had collided head-on with a bus on the N3
southbound near Town Hill, Pietermaritzburg.
ER24 Spokesperson Werner Vermaak
said according to bystanders, the vehicle was apparently travelling into
oncoming traffic when it first partially collided with another light motor
vehicle before colliding head-on with the bus.
Vermaak said it appears as if the
bus dragged the vehicle for several metres before it came to a standstill.
"Paramedics found the driver of
the vehicle with fatal injuries and he was declared dead on the scene,' said
He said two bus drivers and a
hostess were treated for moderate injuries before being taken to hospital.
"All of the passengers in the
bus were assessed by paramedics but were found not to have sustained any
injuries," Vermaak added
The incident was handed over to the
local authorities for further investigation.
