JOHANNESBURG - Paramedics in KwaZulu-Natal have confirmed that six people have been killed and three others injured in a head-on collision between a car and a truck on the N2 South.

Paramedics say the crash happened last night when the driver of the car lost control of the vehicle and veered across the road, colliding with the heavy goods truck.

Netcare 911's Chris Botha says, "When we arrived we found the vehicle about 50 metres from the scene with all six occupants still trapped inside. Tragically they died on impact."
