It happened on Sunday; on the N2 in Mtentweni; in the south coast; KwaZulu Natal. The horror accident that took five lives; happened when a total of 4 vehicles collided.

The emergency services were met with a horrendous sight of vehicles lying on their sides in a wreck.

The spokesperson for emergency services; Craig Botha said; when they got to the scene; three people were in critical condition; while two were in serious condition; while the other three had minor injuries.

While those who were found on the scene of the accident with injuries; were treated and rushed to the nearest hospital; five were found to have succumbed to their injuries.

Traffic was backed up for kilometres as the road had been closed off; while paramedics and rescue personnel worked.

The accident happened near the toll road; near Mtentweni; which caused a lot of traffic; that laterally came to a halt.

The twisted metal on the road; indicated how serious the accident was; it was not clear what caused the accident; which claimed so many lives.

Botha indicated that; it was a second major accident in the space of 24 hours; with two people in critical condition and another two with minor injuries; in an accident that happened between Shelly Beach and Margate; also on the south coast of Durban; on Saturday.

During Saturday's accident; paramedics together with fire and rescue services; had to use specialised rescue tools; to free the trapped person from the vehicle.

The patients were treated on the scene of the accident; before being transported to hospital for further treatment.

Many factors could be attributed to the accident; level1 of the lockdown restrictions due to the pandemic; means there are more cars on the roads; the festive season which is fast beckoning at us and the reckless driving of other road users.
