Two tow truck operators, attending to a broken-down heavy-duty vehicle, were killed when a second truck mowed into them on the N2 freeway near Umhlanga, Durban, on Monday night.


Kyle van Reenen, spokesperson for Emer-G-Med, said the tragedy unfolded at around 10pm.


“Reports from the scene indicate that a heavy-duty vehicle had experienced mechanical failure and had broken down in the area.


“While a towing operator was in attendance, a second heavy-duty vehicle collided into them.

“Two males believed [to be] from the towing operation were found deceased at the scene.”

Van Reenen said a truck driver suffered moderate injuries, was stabilised at the scene and taken to hospital for further care.


“SAPS were on the scene and will be conducting further investigations.”

Golly what a tragedy. When will this ever stop? I think from now on I am going to request a Highway Patrol officer respond to my location for safety as a vehicle showing red & blue lights is the only thing these idiots on the freeway will MOVE OVER for! They just pay no attention whatsoever to Amber lights !! Our thoughts and prayers for the families of the operators,  and to their company.
