The death toll from Tuesday morning's fatal multi-vehicle crash in Alberton has risen to four.
A large section of the N12 highway was brought to a standstill after an 18-wheeler articulated truck ploughed through traffic after his brakes failed. The accident was first reported by a caller on The John Robbie Show.
The driver has since been arrested and EWN's Tshego Modisane reports that officials have cleared the highway.
Xolani spoke to motorist, Tracy Le Roux who witnessed the accident take place in her rearview mirror this morning. Le Roux explains her feelings of helplessness at seeing the carnage on the highway.
