The M4 was once again the location of another tragic accident as a SAPS vehicle collided head on with another car around 3.30pm this afternoon. The M4 was closed between the Zimbali south gate and north gate with traffic being directed back via the N2. With the power outage in Ballito during traffic hour the accident and road closure caused chaos with traffic out of town.
Sadly it was reported that one of the passengers had died after being treated on the scene. The status of the others involved is still unknown.
This section of road is one of the worst on the north coast and has seen some horrific accidents. Local residents of Ballito have asked for greater controls on this section of road but this accident seemed to have less to do with road conditions or space and more to do with the driving of the vehicles in question.
Ballito News will updated the post as more news is received.
