A multiple calamitous and gory truck accident happened in KwaZulu- Natal a while ago, littering body parts on the road, crushing some and paralysing others.

The first crash took place at about 6am on the N3 highway near the notorious Van Reenen’s Pass.

KZN Emergency Medical Service’s Robert McKenzie‚ stated that two trucks and a bus collided.

McKenzie said one person was trapped in one of the trucks and was in a critical condition.

Despite the utter carnage from the collision, the 20 people escaped with injuries ranging from serious to minor.

In the second accident‚ about two hours later‚ on the N2 freeway near Zinkwani on the KZN north coast‚ two people died in a horrific truck accident.

IPSS Medical Rescue’s Paul Herbst described the scene as an “absolute wreckage with body parts all over the road”.

“It appears that a truck went over a Mercedes-Benz‚” he said.

In a third incident around the same time‚ McKenzie said‚ three people died when a truck collided with a SUV on the R34‚ outside Empangeni in northern KwaZulu-Natal.
