ALS Paramedics Medical Services arrived on the scene to find that seven vehicles and a truck had collided in the intersection. Paramedics assessed the scene and found that six people had sustained injuries ranging from minor to moderate and were stabilized on the scene before being transported to a nearby Durban hospital for the further treatment that they required.
