Bakkie rolls down embankment killing one, injuring four on Milkyway Road in Marrian Hill in KwaZulu Natal.

A woman was killed and four others injured this afternoon when a bakkie rolled down an embankment off the Milkyway Road in Marrian Hill in KwaZulu Natal.

ER24 paramedics, along with another service, arrived on the scene to find a bakkie lying on its side at the bottom of an embankment. The body of a woman was found lying trapped inside the vehicle while four men were found outside.

Paramedics assessed the patients and found that the woman had sustained numerous injuries and showed no signs of life. Unfortunately, nothing could be done for her and she was declared dead.

The four men were assessed and found to have sustained injuries ranging from serious to critical.

Paramedics treated the patients, while the critically injured patient was provided with advanced life support interventions.

Once treated, the patients were transported, under advanced life support supervision, to a private hospital for further treatment.

Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
