A man has been killed in an accident on Ridgeview Road in Cato Manor on Sunday evening just after 5 pm.
Rescue Care Paramedics arrived on the scene to find the single vehicle had somehow lost control and rolled coming to rest on its side against a fence of a popular college. The driver who was severely entrapped in the wreckage had sustained major injuries and the Durban Fire Department had to use the Jaws of Life to free him. Unfortunately, he had sustained major injuries and there were nothing Paramedics could do for him and he was declared deceased on the scene. Whilst the vehicle was rolling it knocked a pedestrian on the sidewalk. The man had sustained serious injuries. He was stabilised by Advanced Life Support Paramedics before being transported to a nearby hospital for the further care that he required.
At this stage the events leading up to the single-vehicle losing control and rolling is unknown however SAPS were on the scene and will be investigating further.
