A 50-YEAR-OLD farm worker was killed after the tractor he was driving overturned on the Caversham Valley road near Howick yesterday.

ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks said the tractor was found lying on its side with the driver close to the front wheel. He was declared dead at the scene.

Meanwhile, in Pietermaritzburg at the corner of Alan Paton Drive and Alexandra Road, a 25-year-old driver died as he lost control of his Chrysler PT Cruiser on Sunday night. The passengers were taken to hospital.

Police were unable to release the names of the fatalities in both accidents yesterday.

In another accident, 15 people were hurt in a collision between two cars and a taxi at the intersection of Howard Street and Main Street in the Howick CBD yesterday morning.
