Durban - Two men died when their car crashed into a lamppost on the N3 highway near Durban on Friday, paramedics said.

The driver lost control of the vehicle and it hit a pole on the highway just before Warwick Avenue, said Rescue Care spokesman Garrith Jamieson.

“One of the occupants of the vehicle was found on the roadway and it is suspected that he had been ejected on impact whilst the front seat passenger was still entrapped in the wreckage.”

Both men were declared dead at the scene, said Jamieson. - Sapa
