Durban – A teenager was killed in a crash on the M4 near Westbrook in the early hours of Friday.
According to IPSS Medical Rescue, the accident claimed the life of a 13-year-old boy.
“On arrival, it was found that the light motor vehicle with four occupants had left the road, hitting a tree before rolling,” said IPSS spokesperson Dylan Meyrick.
The 13-year-old sustained fatal injuries.
“The remaining occupants were lucky to escape with minor injuries,” Meyrick said.

He said the SAPS were at the scene and would be investigating further.
On Thursday, 13 people were injured in an accident on the N3 Durban-bound before Spaghetti Junction.
