The N1 North highway near the Allandale offramp in Johannesburg is heavily backed up this hour following a major accident.

A truck lost control and crashed, resulting in a fire. JMPD spokesperson Wayne Minnaar said the truck driver has been injured but the extent of his injuries are not known.

“The truck was transporting cars when the truck driver lost control and drove through the centre median. It is confirmed that people have been injured, the number of people have not been established, but at least three lanes, affecting in both North and South directions.

The JMPD said long delays on the N1, in both northbound and southbound directions, are expected to continue into peak hour traffic.

Road users are advised to avoid the N1 between Allandale and New Road and use alternative routes such as Old Pretoria Road or the R55.
