Johannesburg - Three men were killed and another person injured when the car they were travelling in rolled on the M13 near Hillcrest, KwaZulu-Natal on Saturday, paramedics said.

“The four occupants were found outside of the vehicle and are believed to have been ejected when the car rolled,” ER24 spokesman Derrick Banks said.

“Two of the occupants were found on the road near to the car while the other two occupants were found behind the Armco barrier some meters away.”

The driver lost control of the car and veered off the road crashing into the centre medium causing the car to roll, said Banks

The three men died on the scene. The fourth person was taken to the RK Khans Hospital. - Sapa
