A head-on smash along Road 751 in Chatsworth has left one person dead and another critically injured this morning around 10h38. Exact detail to the cause of the accident and preceding events is still speculative and will remain a subject for police investigation and comment.
Netcare 911 paramedics arrived at the scene and found the roadway littered with accident debris and the twisted frames of the car and taxi, the injured were found trapped in the twisted metal of the car. Tragically, one man died at the scene due to the extensive injuries that he sustained, the other patient had sustained life-threatening injuries.
After medics stabilised the injured man at the scene they airlifted him to a specialised facility in Durban for the care that he required.
