Durban - Two people were injured, one critically, when the car they were travelling in rolled on the M13 in the direction of Pietermaritzburg near Richmond Road in Pinetown on Saturday evening, paramedics said.

Rescue Care paramedics arrived on the scene around 5.50pm to find that a car had overturned, coming to rest on its roof in the fast lane, Rescue Care spokesman Garrith Jamieson said on Sunday.

"Paramedics found the driver had been ejected from the vehicle and had sustained critical injuries. She was stabilised by advanced life support paramedics and placed on a manual ventilator on the scene before being rushed to a nearby hospital for the further care that she required."

The passenger had sustained moderate injuries and was also treated before being transported to hospital. Both occupants were believed to be in their 30s. At this stage, the cause of the accident was unknown, Jamieson said.
