Two injured in 15-car pileup
Two people were hurt after a truck overturned and crashed into 15 cars on the N1 highway in Rivonia.
JOHANNESBURG – Two people sustained moderate injuries after a truck overturned and crashed into 15 cars on the N1 highway in Rivonia, north of Johannesburg.
The truck was heading south from the Buccleuch Interchange, when the driver allegedly lost control of the large vehicle.
This resulted in a 300 metre-long accident scene between Rivonia and William Nicol Drive.
ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson said paramedics rushed to the scene and all occupants were medically assessed.
Two people were taken to a nearby hospital.
The already strained afternoon traffic was brought to a standstill, with only a partial lane of the five-lane highway open to traffic.
