New footage has emerged showing an aerial view of the horrific incident just days after 10 girls were killed in a bus crash, also in Durban.

The latest deaths occurred when an articulated truck hit four fully-laden taxis and a Volkswagen Jetta on the corner of Fields Hill (M13) and Richmond Road in Pinetown shortly before 7pm, according to paramedics.

A KwaZulu-Natal Road Traffic Inspectorate spokesperson said the Pinetown accident occurred when the brakes failed on a truck belonging to Evergreen Transport. It took the off-ramp from the M13 at the bottom of Fields Hill and crashed into the four minibus taxis and a car at the intersection with Richmond Road.
