Johannesburg -

The N3 freeway between the Marlboro offramp and the Buccleuch interchange was closed on Wednesday morning following an accident, said the Johannesburg metro police department (JMPD).

“Two trucks crashed into each other,” said JMPD Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar.

“All the lanes are closed.”

Motorists using the N3 would be forced to exit on the Marlboro offramp and get on the M1 to avoid the obstruction.

“One person, who was a passenger in the rear truck, has been injured,” said Minnaar.

Emergency services and JMPD were working on clearing the scene, he said. - Sapa
