Bakkie rollover leaves one dead, two injured on the Manderston Road in Thornville

12 March 2018 | From Arrive Alive


One man has been killed and two others injured this afternoon following a bakkie rollover on the Manderston Road in Thornville, KwaZulu Natal.
ER24 paramedics were dispatched to the scene at 17h43.
Upon arrival, paramedics found a bakkie lying on its side at the bottom of a small embankment. Two men were found walking around on the scene.
Paramedics assessed the men and found that both had sustained only minor injuries. While treating the men, paramedics were told that a third man was trapped beneath the rear of the bakkie. 
A third man, believed to be in his 30s, was found lying trapped beneath the rear wheel of the bakkie. Unfortunately, the man had already succumbed to his injuries. Nothing could be done for him and he was declared dead.
The two other men were treated for their injuries, but declined transportation to a nearby hospital.
Local authorities were on the scene to investigate the exact cause of this incident.
