Three people have been injured following a thirteen-vehicle collision on the N4, approximately 5km outside of Middleburg in Mpumalanga.
On arrival, paramedics found that ten vehicles and three trucks were completely blocking the entire one side of the road.
Several vehicles were also found overturned on the grassy embankment.
It is understood that a driver of a truck apparently lost control, causing the vehicle to crash into several others during #BlackMonday protest.
According to ER24, two people were found to have sustained serious injuries while one other had only moderate injuries.
“All seriously injured patients were provided with pain-relief medication and later transported to a nearby hospital in Middelburg for further treatment,” ER24 said in a statement.
