Durban - Two people were injured when a motorbike and a car collided on Fields Hill in Pinetown, Durban, on Sunday morning, paramedics said.

Rescue Care paramedics were called to the scene of the serious collision on the M13 Fields Hill just after 8am on Sunday morning, Rescue Care spokesperson Garrith Jamieson said.

"On arrival paramedics found that both carriageways had been affected after a biker who was travelling westbound up Fields Hill somehow lost control and collided with the barrier; the bike landed on the eastbound carriageway colliding head-on into a car.

"The bike rider and the car driver had sustained moderate injuries and were stabilised on the scene by advanced life support paramedics on the scene before being transported to nearby hospitals for the further care that they required."
 
At this stage the cause of the biker losing control was unknown, Jamieson said.
