One killed as car crashes into coil that fell off from truck

One person has died and another injured in a freak accident between a car and a rubber coil that fell off a truck in the Western Cape.

The fatal crash happened on West Coast road between Grotto Bay and Jakkalsfontein.

Two trucks and two light motor vehicles were involved.

Apparently, a rubber coil came loose and fell off one of the trucks and collided with the other vehicles.

A passenger in one of the light motor vehicles died on the scene while the driver was seriously injured and trapped inside the wreckage.

Fatal crash earlier today on R27 Westcoast road near Jakkalsfontein. Passenger in light motor vehicle fatal. Stop/Go in place.
