Ten taken to hospital following multiple vehicle crash
Ten people were rushed to hospital following a eight-way vehicle crash along Mandela High Way on Friday. Reports are that about 3:00 p.m., a motorist was travelling along the busy thoroughfare and on reaching a section of the roadway was forced to come to an abrupt stop to allow several persons to cross the road.
Motorists who were travelling behind tried to slow down but ended up slamming into each other.
“The report that we received is that about 10 people were injured in the incident, there were no reports of fatalities,” said one officer from Ferry Police station.
Police have also issued a call for motorist to exercise greater care when travelling on the high way especially with roadworks now taking place in the area.
The multi-vehicle crash along the Mandela Highway also led to major traffic congestion.
Motorists complained that the traffic congestion was much worse than normal along the busy thoroughfare that is undergoing major rehabilitation work that has severely reduced the available space along the roadway.
