A truck got involved in accident with another vehicle which then led truck to overturn on side and loose the luggage.

It is reported that the truck was carrying iron ore (magnetite) from the local mine in Phalaborwa (Limpopo) . It was involved in an accident with another vehicle. The R71 route is closed and traffic is being diverted via the R40.

From all people which were involved in this accident, the good news is that there are no death beside the only one person which sustained very serious injuries and the person was rushed to the nearest hospitals.

There is no week which can go without a serious accident on this road. Most of people have complained about that road, they say it's slippery and it becomes dangerous when there is rain or even drizzling.

It's unfortunate that our government can do something with it since it is now clear that South African government is broke.
