Mpumalanga Department of Community Safety spokesperson Joseph Mabuza told News24 police are on the scene and that the two people who were seriously injured were taken to a local hospital.
“There was a roadblock [on the highway] due to protests,” he said.”The driver of the truck failed to stop the truck on time by the time he saw the protestors and crashed into the cars.
More cars piled on as they crashed into him from behind,” Mabuza explained.
