Tugela accident death: Three people died in the multi-vehicle crash on the N3 in the vicinity of the Tugela Toll Plaza. An RIP message on Lulu Balkishun was shared on Facebook by Lee David.
The Tugela accident happened after two trucks and two cars collided on the southbound carriageway, that is heading from Johannesburg towards the coast, between the toll and Bergville off-ramps.
According to KwaZulu-Natal Emergency Medical Services’ spokesperson, Robert Mckenzie, three other people were rushed to hospital.
The N3 Toll Concession’s Con Roux says traffic heading towards Durban is being diverted via Ladysmith.
“Traffic heading towards the Durban area is being diverted through the Ladysmith area on the R103 to come back onto the N3 at the Bergville interchange,” said Roux.
“As we head into the long weekend, what is of crucial importance is that drivers of light and heavy motor vehicles share the road responsibly together and understand the limitations of their different vehicles.”
May the souls of the dead victims rest in perfect peace.
