Queue-jumping trucks have allegedly caused a serious crash on the N4 outside Komatipoort, leaving two drivers with serious injuries and another with minor injuries.

The incident occurred when one truck, reportedly attempting to jump the queue, was overtaking the line of trucks waiting on the N4.

In a tragic turn of events, another truck, travelling in the opposite direction and also attempting to jump the queue, made an illegal U-turn directly in the path of the overtaking vehicle, resulting in a catastrophic collision.

The collision didn’t end there, as the overtaking truck, now out of control, plowed into another truck patiently waiting in the queue.
