Fatal truck accident on N12 after driver takes evasive action

Truck Accident N12Fatal Truck Accident A fatal truck accident occurred earlier today on the N12 and underneath the R24 bridge. One truck was involved and reports from the scene indicate the driver took evasive action as the driver of the car in front of him experienced a tyre blowout.

The driver was declared dead on scene once access could be gained with assistance from rescue personnel. No other injuries reported. Traffic was held up on both sides of the N12 for several kilometres.

Traveling towards Johannesburg was impossible for some time as all lanes were closed, then only one was reopened, as the recovery of the truck was not yet complete.
