CAPE TOWN - A truck driver has been arrested following a deadly collision on the N7 near Citrusdal.

He was driving on the wrong side of the road when he hit an oncoming car yesterday. Three people died and a fourth person is in a serious condition in hospital.

Western Cape traffic chief Kenny Africa said, "He was driving on the wrong side of the road. At this point in time, we don't know whether it was fatigue or what the reasons were but the driver was arrested on the spot by police."

In a separate incident yesterday in Helshoogte near Stellenbosch, a motorcyclist knocked over a 14-year-old child. Both died on the scene.
