Durban – A truck carrying sulphuric acid overturned at the Umvoti Ultra City, south bound, on Saturday, IPSS Medical Rescue said.

The truck carrying sixteen 1 000-litre containers overturned in the parking lot of the Ultra City, IPSS Medical Rescue spokesperson Dylan Meyrick said.

“At the moment, we are not sure how many containers have ruptured because there is too much gas,” he said.

Fourteen people were taken to hospital.

Meyrick said the fire department and medical rescue teams were on the scene trying to contain the situation.

The Ultra City would remain closed.
