JOHANNESBURG – Another person has died from the N3 South crash in Vosloorus, with the toll now rising to 10.
Nine people were confirmed dead on Monday, while at least 20 others were injured in the multi-vehicle pile-up near the Barry Marias offramp.
Seven patients were transported to the Thelle Mogoerane Hospital, two of them in a critical condition.
Acting hospital CEO Michael Malaka said that a woman succumbed to her injuries last night.
“It was a female patient that arrived at 3.30pm with head injuries and a blunt abdominal injury. The patient was booked for theatre and later died in theatre, unfortunately.”
Meanwhile, the Road Traffic Management Corporation said that preliminary investigations suggest a truck driver made an abrupt stop on the highway causing the crash.
