Three people were killed this afternoon when the vehicle they were traveling in collided with the M13 bridge along the N3 in Pinetown.
Shortly after 2pm paramedics from ER24 and other services arrived on the scene where they found the vehicle lying on its roof against the bridge pillar in the centre median.
Two people were found under the vehicle with fatal injuries. Sadly, there was nothing that paramedics could do for them and they were declared dead on the scene.
Another person was found in a critical condition a few meters away from the vehicle. Paramedics treated the patient, however he later succumbed to his injuries on scene.
It is believed that the vehicle was traveling toward Durban on the N3 when the collision occurred.
The exact cause for the collision is not yet known. Local authorities attended the scene and will conduct an investigation.
