A 50-year old truck driver died on Monday night when a truck collided with four vehicles in the intersection at Pinetown, west of Durban,
Leon Fourie of Life Response said the driver got out of his truck and was speaking to metro police when he got back in and tried to reverse his truck. He jumped out of his truck and the truck gained momentum going down Stapleton road pushing the cars with it.
“The truck drive attempted to stop the truck and when doing so fell out and hit his head on the road. The truck went down an embankment and into a residential property causing severe damage to the property and two vehicles inside the property.”
Fourie said Life Response paramedics attended to the truck driver, and attempted to resuscitate him but sadly he died.
Fortunately, no one else was injured. SAPS and metro police will be investigating the cause of the collision.
