Six people were killed and several injured in a multi-vehicle crash in Cato Ridge, Durban, ER24 paramedics said. It is believed the driver of a heavy-duty truck lost control of his vehicle and this led to the pile-up on Friday afternoon. ER24 paramedics, along with other services, arrived on the scene shortly before 13:00 to find the truck, a bakkie and light motor vehicle on the side of the road. Spokesperson Russel Meiring said upon arrival, paramedics assessed the patients and found that five men had died as a result of their injuries. Meiring added several people were given life support, but "after some time, one of the critically injured patients succumbed to his injuries". Two men were found trapped in the truck, while another two had sustained moderate injuries.
