Balram said a witness told them that the light motor vehicle was travelling at a high rate of speed from KwaMashu in the direction of Avoca Hills. The driver allegedly failed to negotiate a bend and collided with a metal barrier. The car became airborne and landed in the contraflow lane. 

“One occupant was ejected. The vehicle was crushed by a truck & trailer that was travelling in the opposite direction. The driver of the truck sustained minor injuries,” Balram said.
