Durban - A man died when his truck plunged down a 30 metre embankment in Durban on Thursday, paramedics said.

“Indications from the scene are that the driver of the truck lost control while driving on the east-bound lane of the M13 near Blair Athol Road,” Netcare spokesman Chris Botha said on Thursday.

The driver died on impact. It took rescue workers three hours to free his body, which was trapped under the truck, Botha said. - Sapa
