DURBAN, kwaZulu-Natal - A truck collided with eight cars on the N3 Durban-bound after the Pavilion on Wednesday (Dec 10 2014).

Six people were treated and stabilised on the scene before being taken to various Durban hospitals. At this stage it is unclear what caused the collision but police were on the scene and will be investigating further.

Traffic was severely affected on the Durban-bound carriageway as emergency personal worked to clear the scene.
