Meanwhile, four other individuals were rushed to the hospital, three of whom sustained serious injuries.

The N11 highway, a critical transport artery between Mpumalanga and KwaZulu Natal, was temporarily closed to allow for accident investigations and the safe removal of vehicles and debris from the scene.

This closure led to significant traffic disruptions in the area, with authorities advising commuters to seek alternative routes to avoid the gridlock.

Heavy mist that enveloped the region is one contributing factor to the accident as it severely limited visibility in the area.
