One person has been killed after a crash on the R102 near Gingingdlovu, northern KwaZulu-Natal, on Monday night.

Two children remain in critical condition.

IPSS Spokesperson, Paul Herbst says it is alleged that one of the vehicles was transporting a political speaker and his bodyguards.

Herbst says the injured were transported to a nearby hospital for further treatment.

“On arrival paramedics were informed that a Fortuner had T-boned a light motor vehicle carrying a family of four. The Fortuner was reportedly transporting a political speaker and his security detail. The seemingly high impact collision resulted in the death of a female passenger from the family sedan while a man and two boys from the same vehicle sustained critical injuries. IPSS advanced medical support paramedics stabilised the injured before transporting them for further care. The speaker and his bodyguards sustained moderate injuries and were also transported. SAPS was in attendance and will be investigating further,” says Herbst.
