One person has been seriously injured in an accident on Umbilo Road and Sarnia Road just after 5pm on Monday evening.

ALS Paramedics Medical Services arrived on the scene to find that a truck and a light motor vehicle had collided in the intersection before the truck lost control and crashed into a wall. A male in his forties was found to be entrapped in the vehicle having sustained serious injuries and was stabilized on the scene by Advanced Life Support Paramedics whilst the Durban Fire Department used the jaws of life to cut him free from the wreckage. Once freed the patient was transported to a nearby Durban hospital for the further treatment that he required.

At this stage the events leading up to the accident are unknown however SAPS were on the scene and will be investigating further.
