“A truck and a light motor vehicle have collided in that intersection. The truck had continued quite a while up the road where it came to rest on the Durban bound carriageway of the M7 (Edwin Swales Drive). Paramedics had assessed the scene and found that two police officers in the light motor vehicle had sustained fatal injuries… there was nothing more that paramedics could do for them and they were declared deceased on the scene,” he said.

It is believed that the police officers, a man, and a woman were members of the Cato Manor detective branch.
