Netcare 911 spokesman Chris Botha said paramedics responded to the accident on the N2 North about 3km from Umkomaas at 11.25am.

A man has been reported dead after he was hit by a bakkie on the N2 near Umkomaas on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast on Sunday morning, paramedics said.

Netcare 911 spokesman Chris Botha said paramedics responded to the accident on the N2 North about 3km from Umkomaas at 11.25am.

“Reports from the scene indicate that a man tried to run across the highway when he was hit by a bakkie. Paramedics arrived at the scene and found that the man had been flung about 10 metres into the grass area next to the highway.

“Tragically it was found that the man died before our arrival due to the extensive injuries that he sustained. The vehicle had left the scene but drove to Umkomaas police station to report the accident,” he said.
