One person died instantly while two others sustained serious injuries in a horror crash along the N1 North on Wednesday morning. The accident, involving a truck, occurred around 11:00 just as rain began to pour down in the mountain pass, shortly before the first Witvlag road turn-off. According to rescue workers on the scene, the truck was travelling in a southernly direction when tragedy struck. The truck apparently struck the safety barrier on the opposite side of the road, causing its trailer to flip over the cab. The two injured people, which included the driver of the truck, were transported to the Louis Trichardt Memorial Hospital for medical treatment.
