Four people were declared dead on the scene by paramedics. 

Two people were seriously injured, and six others sustained minor to moderate injuries.

“The injured patients were treated on scene and once stabilised were transported by various ambulances to hospital for further treatment,” Herbst confirmed. 

It is not yet clear what caused the accident. 

Meanwhile, a private ambulance treated one person for serious injuries on Sunday morning, after the driver was ejected from a vehicle on the N3 near Cato Ridge, also in KZN.
