A man died and one was injured when a truck and two cars collided on the N2 near the Tongaat toll plaza, in KwaZulu-Natal, on Friday evening, paramedics said.
A car collided with the truck, veered off the road and crashed into another car, said Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha.
A man in his 40s was declared dead on the scene and another man suffered minor injuries. He was treated on the scene before taken to hospital.
Traffic on both the north and south bound carriageways was disrupted, said Botha.
