Cape Tow - A Cape motorist died on Wednesday morning in a head-on smash on Ou Kaapseweg.

Cape Town Traffic spokeswoman Maxine Jordaan said a white Nissan Sentra collided with a Porsche Cayenne on a bend at the foot of the pass, near Silvermine, at about 9.15am.

The Nissan driver, 30, died, and the Porsche driver sustained slight injuries.

An hour later, traffic was being managed by a stop-go system and cars were lining up while rescue crews cleared the road.
