Paramedics arrived on the scene to find that a single vehicle had somehow lost control and left the roadway, colliding with a tree down a bank.

A man believed to be in his 40s died when his car left the road and crashed into a tree in Bellair Road in Durban in the early hours of Saturday morning, KwaZulu-Natal paramedics said.

“Just after 1am Rescue Care paramedics arrived on the scene near the hospital to find that a single vehicle had somehow lost control and left the roadway colliding with a tree down a bank,” Rescue Care spokesperson Garrith Jamieson said.

“The driver was found to be trapped in the wreckage. Paramedics assessed the man and found that he had sustained major injuries and there was nothing more paramedics could do. The man was declared dead on the scene. The Durban fire department used the jaws-of-life to cut the man free.”

At this stage the cause of the crash was unknown, Jamieson said.
