A MAN, believed to be in his 40s, has been killed while six others have been injured in an accident on the M4.

“Paramedics arrived on scene to find that a single vehicle had somehow lost control and rolled numerous times, coming to rest on its wheels. Paramedics found multiple patients and immediately called for more resources as well as the Durban Fire Department.

“After a quick triage, it was established that there were seven occupants in the vehicle. One man sustained major injuries and, unfortunately, there was nothing the paramedics could do for him, and he was declared deceased on the scene. Six other occupants had sustained injuries ranging from moderate to serious, and they were stabilised on the scene before being transported to various hospitals,” he said.

The accident follows another tragedy on the M4 on Tuesday when a pregnant woman and her unborn child died in a rear-end collision.
