A 35-year-old truck driver died after a load of steel beams he was transporting shifted and crushed the driver’s cab in Three Rivers on Wednesday evening.

ER24 spokesperson Ross Campbell said the incident happened on General Hertzog Street, Three Rivers, just outside Vereeniging on Wednesday evening.

Campbell said an entire truck-load of 6m steel beams had ripped through the back head of the trailer and landed on top of the cab.
