2 dead in KZN crash

Johannesburg - Two people were killed in a car accident on Umngeni road towards Durban, KwaZulu-Natal paramedics said on Saturday.

Rescue Care spokesperson Garrith Jamieson said the incident occurred at around 22:20 on Friday evening.

He said the driver appeared to have lost control of the vehicle and rolled numerous times before hitting a light pole.

"It is believed some of the occupants were ejected from the vehicle whilst it was rolling. Paramedics... found that two people were still entrapped in the wreckage and had unfortunately passed away," said Jamieson.

Six other people who had been in the car were found lying on the side walk. They had sustained various injuries.

The six were taken to various hospitals in the area for further care.

The cause of the accident was being investigated.

If it was a car- it's clear: overloading and speed are the causes loss of control. But if it was a kuni taxi or van- should suspect alcohol/ speed. May their souls rest in perfect peace.

Accidents happen but having EIGHT occupants in a vehicle surely contributed to the accident happening. Engineers design cars with certain specifications in mind and at all times the utmost factor is people safety. Maybe if the vehicle was not overloaded,an accident may have still occurred but the outcome would have been different to this sad one.
