A woman and her 7 year old brother were killed after a boulder, which was thrown from a bridge in-between Tongaat and Ballito, struck the vehicle they were traveling in, last night

IPSS Medical Rescue received a call for an accident on the N2 Northbound, between Tongaat and Ballito last night.

While our response teams were en route to the accident, we received a second call saying that the driver was traveling towards a local hospital in Ballito. Our teams rerouted towards the hospital and met the vehicle.

Unfortunately both victims were declared dead upon arrival at hospital.

A giant boulder hurled from a highway overpass on the N2 struck the windscreen of their vehicle crushing the woman and her 7 year old brother. The woman’s husband, the driver of the vehicle, was lucky to escape the rock strike, unharmed.

It is understood that the family had been traveling North to Stanger when the incident occured.

The SAPS is investigating two counts of murder.
