ER24 Paramedics attended this accident scene.
ER24 is an Emergency Medical Service providing efficient, effective emergency response and pre-hospital care.
Two people were killed and another two sustained serious injuries when two delivery trucks collided head on with each other on the M13 in Fields Hill, Pinetown.
At approximately 16.30pm paramedics arrived on the scene where they found the two vehicles severely damaged with two occupants trapped inside one of the vehicles. Both of them were in a critical condition.
Paramedics managed to extricate the one trapped victim. The other trapped victim had to be freed using hydraulic equipment. Once freed, the two critically injured quickly deteriorated.
Paramedics did everything possible to save their lives, but sadly, they were later declared dead on the scene. The two occupants from the other vehicle were treated by another service on scene and transported to a nearby hospital.
It is understood that one of the vehicles lost control and veered across the centre median into oncoming traffic.
Local law enforcement attended the scene and will conduct an investigation.
