A woman sustained fatal injuries and four others were left injured following a single-vehicle rollover on the N3 roughly 8kms from Bergville Toll Plaza in Ladysmith yesterday morning.
When ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene at approximately 11h30, they found a doctor in attendance assisting some of the patients, as well as another medical service. It is understood that the doctor was passing by when he came across the incident. Upon further assessment, paramedics found a woman lying roughly 15m from the vehicle. She was showing no signs of life and paramedics declared her dead at the scene.
Three patients sustained minor injuries and were transported privately to Ladysmith Hospital. Another patient had sustained moderate injuries and was transported to hospital by another medical service at the scene.
The exact circumstances surrounding the incident were not known to our paramedics, but local authorities were on scene for further investigations.
