The R60 highway had to be closed in both directions today after two trucks had collided head on about 10km outside Swellendam, the Western Cape.
According to traffic chief Kenny Africa, one of the truck drivers managed to escape without any serious injuries while another had burnt beyond recognition along with his vehicle.
“Officers are redirecting traffic from Ashton side via Drew on the R317 through Stormsvlei to the N2,” Africa added. “From Swellendam they are redirecting traffic – light motor vehicles only – just before the crash scene via Leeurivier back onto the R60.”
The authorities were on the scene investigating the cause of the terrible crash.
