Netcare911 responded to the crash, in which vehicles and a truck were involved. It is believed that before the crash, a portion of the N1 had been cordoned off due to an earlier crime incident.
A witness said that a heavy motor vehicle had jack-knifed while trying to avoid crashing into the scene. This resulted in multiple vehicles crashing into both the heavy vehicle and other cars.
Multiple injuries ranging from minor to serious were reported, with various ambulances transporting patients to local hospitals.
Although the crash took place just before 9 pm on Saturday evening, authorities were still cleaning up debris at Atterbury road as recently as 7 am on Sunday morning.
