Vosloorus - A man was killed on Friday when his truck crashed into a concrete culvert on the N3 highway in Vosloorus, Ekurhuleni, paramedics said.

Reports indicated that he lost control of the truck and it veered off the road, said Netcare 911 spokesman Chris Botha.

“The truck came to a rest in a farm land with the driver still trapped in the mangled cab,” said Botha.

He was airlifted to hospital, but died soon after his arrival. - Sapa
