A 35-year-old man has died after he lost control and rolled the truck he was driving on the N3, near the Armitage Road turnoff just North of Pietermaritzburg early this morning.

ER24 paramedics as well as the Fire Department were on the scene just before 5 am to find the truck on it’s side, half in the emergency lane and half down the embankment and the driver entrapped. Unfortunately, due to the severity of his injuries, by the time the man was extracted from the cab he showed no signs of life and was declared dead on the scene.
The SAPS and Road Traffic Inspectorate were on the scene for further investigations.
