Zuma’s convoy involved in crash on M4 near Umhlanga
THE national police said a motorist collided head-on with a presidential protection service vehicle on the M4 highway near Umhlanga on Tuesday night.
In a statement from the office of the acting national police commissioner, Kgomotso Phahlane, yesterday, the police said the Presidential Protection Services vehicles were travelling in convoy when the collision occurred.
The police said a vehicle from the oncoming lane collided with the lead vehicle of the convoy. The 28-year-old female driver of the oncoming vehicle and a police sergeant, 37, were both injured.
It could not be confirmed yesterday whether President Jacob Zuma, who was in Durban to attend a launch event at the Toyota Prospecton , was in one of the vehicles in the convoy. The DA, however, claimed that Zuma had been in the convoy and had proceeded to King Shaka International Airport.
Crisis Medical’s Neil Powell said their ambulance service had responded to the incident just after 6.40pm on Tuesday.
