One killed in freak secondary collision

One person was killed in a motor vehicle collision on the N11 close to the R34 off ramp near Newcastle last night.

A light motor vehicle was allegedly hit by a truck. It is understood that the driver of the light motor vehicle was either flung from the vehicle or exited the vehicle thereafter.

Another vehicle, a bakkie, then allegedly ran over the person who was out of the vehicle. When ER24 paramedics arrived on scene they found that the driver of the vehicle had already succumbed to his injuries.

The actual cause of the collision remains unknown, however local authorities were on scene for investigation.
