Durban - A man died and one person was injured when two cars collided near the Berea Road offramp on the N3 west-bound in Durban on Thursday, paramedics said.

“Paramedics arrived to find that two vehicles had collided in a rear-end collision before one vehicle overturned,” Rescue Care spokesman Garrith Jamieson said.

The man, driving the one car, was found with critical injuries lying in the right hand lane of the highway around 2pm on Thursday afternoon.

He was given advanced life support and placed on a manual ventilator at the scene, but died shortly after he arrived at a nearby hospital, Jamieson said.

The other driver sustained minor injuries and was also taken to a nearby hospital for further treatment.

Jamieson said it was not known how the accident happened.

Police were investigating.
