Many people, including a pregnant motorist, were injured when a truck rammed into at least 15 vehicles on the M41 in Umhlanga on Monday morning.
Emer-G-Med spokesman Kyle van Reenen said on arrival at the scene, emergency teams were met with mayhem after a fully laden truck rammed into several light motor vehicles.
The truck then careered into a bush on the side of the road.
“Many people were left with injuries ranging from minor to moderate with one pregnant female motorist left with serious injuries.
“She was treated and stabilised at the scene before being airlifted by the Netcare911 aeromedical helicopter to a specialist facility for definitive care”
IPSS Medical Rescue spokesperson Samantha Meyrick there were no fatalities.
“Medics at the scene have confirmed after searching all the vehicles there appear to be no deaths.”
ALS Paramedics spokesperson Garrith Jamieson said traffic was severely affected while emergency services are working at the scene.
