A KwaZulu-Natal family is lucky to have escaped tragedy after a Freightline truck towing a tautliner trailer crashed into their house in the south coast.

The truck driver allegedly lost control while trying to avoid steel roadside barricades on the N2 in Izingolweni on Monday night.

Homeowner Litha Ntobela, 68, said barricades had been removed from the area and placed in the road by community members during a service delivery protest a few minutes before the accident.
