    Four killed in horrific N2 collision before Spaghetti Junction 

    Four people have been killed and eight others injured in a horrific collision on the N2 North bound before Spaghetti Junction. 

    The accident reportedly happened around 20:00 on Friday. 


    ALS Paramedics Medical Services together with Life Response reportedly arrived on the scene to find total carnage after a SUV believed to be carrying an entire family had somehow lost control and collided into the rear of a truck. 

    One male and two females from the SUV were found to be severely entrapped in the wreckage with fatal injuries.

    “Unfortunately there was nothing paramedics could do for them and they were declared deceased on the scene. The eThekwini Fire Department utilised the Jaws of Life and other hydraulic tools to free them from the wreckage. A teenager also succumbed to their injuries.

    “Eight others including two babies had sustained injuries ranging from moderate to critical and they were stabilised on the scene before being transported to a nearby Durban hospital for the further treatment that they required.”
