DURBAN - Five people, including two children are lucky to have escaped serious injury after the vehicle they were travelling in on the N2 rolled about 100 metres down Wilson’s Cutting mountain in KwaZulu-Natal on Wednesday.
KwaZulu Private Ambulance (KZPA) spokesperson Craig Botha said paramedics responded to the scene after receiving reports of a collision on Wednesday night.
“When emergency services arrived they found that a vehicle had lost control, left the roadway and went down the side of a mountain approximately 100 metres,” he said.
Botha said paramedics quickly assessed the scene and found that five patients, including two young children had sustained minor injuries.
“The patients were treated on scene before being transported to hospital for further treatment,” he said.
Earlier this year, The Mercury reported that a man who was trapped in his vehicle overnight after it rolled down an embankment on the M13 in Pinetown, was freed by paramedics.
Netcare 911 paramedics used hydraulic tools to free the man who had sustained moderate injuries.
The motorist was fortunate that a passer-by heard his calls for help coming from bush and went to investigate.
