Cop K_illed in high speed crash in Durban ,


 The driver – the only occupant of the car – was found trapped in the badly wrecked vehicle, having suffered fatal injuries.



A 30-year-old SA Police Service (SAPS) officer was K_illed in a high speed crash on the M19 highway in the vicinity of Westville, Durban, on Friday afternoon, KwaZulu-Natal paramedics said.



Crisis Medical spokesperson Kyle van Reenen said paramedics arrived on the scene shortly after 4pm to find the police car had collided at high speed with a stationary road maintenance vehicle.



The driver – the only occupant of the car – was found trapped in the badly wrecked vehicle, having suffered fatal injuries. He was declared dead on arrival.



The scene was then handed over to the SAPS for investigation, Van Reenen said.



In another incident, a man believed to be in his 30s died after he was hit by a vehicle on the N2 before the Spaghetti Junction in Durban on Saturday morning, KwaZulu-Natal paramedics said.



When Netcare 911 paramedics arrived on the scene at about 10.40am they found the man to be in a critical condition, spokesperson Athlenda Mathe said.



“Paramedics performed advanced life support care to the man and managed to stabilise him before transporting him to a nearby hospital for further medical care.”



Before arrival at the hospital the man went into cardiac arrest in the ambulance. Paramedics then initiated cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) but “sadly there was nothing more they could do for the man”.



Upon arrival at the hospital the man was declared dead by a doctor, Mathe said.
