A woman has been killed in a horrific accident in the early hours of this morning on Umgeni Road, near Walter Gilbert Road, in Durban.

Rescue Care operations director Garrith Jamieson said paramedics found the wreck of the vehicle in pieces. It had rolled several times before colliding with a lamp pole.

“Paramedics found four occupants in the vehicle. Sadly one of the passengers, a female, had suffered fatal injuries and there was nothing paramedics could do for her. She was declared deceased on the scene,” he said.

“The other three occupants of the vehicle suffered minor injuries and were transported to a nearby facility for further care.”

Jamieson added it was unclear what caused the vehicle to crash. However, police were on scene and would investigate the matter.
