Chuenespoort - A motorcyclist was killed in an accident on the R37 at Chuenespoort, Limpopo, on Wednesday, paramedics said.
It seemed the man was speeding when he missed a curve and skidded, ER24 spokesman Naphtali Mahandana said.
The motorcycle hit the side of an oncoming mini-truck. The truck veered out of its lane and the motorcycle slid underneath a bakkie behind it. The rider sustained severe spinal injuries and died before paramedics arrived.
This was the third such accident at the same spot this year.
