A woman believed to be in her late forties has lost her life after crashing into the back of a truck on the N2 South bound near Umgababa this afternoon.
ER24 and the local Fire Department arrived on the scene and found the car partly in the right hand lane of the N2 with the truck just a few meters away. Paramedics assessed the driver who was still entrapped the wreckage but had unfortunately already succumbed to her injuries and was declared deceased on the scene. The Jaws of Life and other rescue equipment was used to extricate the deceased from the car.
It is unclear why the woman lost control of her car but the local authorities were on the scene and would investigate the accident further. Traffic in the area was severely affected due to the accident.
