A man was killed and two others injured when the car he was driving collided with a lorry near Nelspruit on Monday.
Netcare 911 spokeswoman Athlenda Mathe said the man was alone in the car and succumbed to his injuries at the accident.
The Mbombela fire department used the jaws of life to free one of the occupants of the lorry, who was taken to hospital in a serious condition. The other occupant of the lorry sustained moderate injuries.
Mathe said the cause of the accident was being investigated, but urged motorists to drive with caution in the wet weather.
