One person was killed and several other people were injured following a head on collision on the south bound lane of the M4 in the vicinity of the Umdloti Beach offramp near La Mercy.

Members of Reaction Unit South Africa were called out to the scene by passing motorists requesting medical assistance for the injured. Upon arrival it was established that the driver of a Ford Ranger bakkie was killed in the high impact collision. Several passengers of a mini bus taxi were also injured and were stabilised on scene by Medics before being transported to hospital.

It is alleged that the driver of a Jeep Wrangler was travelling in the direction of Umdloti Beach when he overtook a Mercedes Benz mini bus taxi. His vehicle collided head on into the Ford Ranger that was travelling in the opposite direction. The SUV then collided into the taxi which left the roadway and climbed several meters up an embankment before it came to a stop.

The 54 year old driver of the Jeep Wrangler sustained moderate injuries and was also transported to hospital by ambulance.
