The Du Toitskloof Pass and Huguenot Tunnel have both been closed following the crash.

Western Cape traffic chief Kenny Africa: “Currently we have a situation just outside the Huguenot tunnel next to the N1 where a chopper went down. The chopper struck overhead power cables. We’re urging motorists coming from Cape Town to please make use of the Sir Lowry’s Pass, Grabouw-Villiersdorp road towards Worcester or from Cape Town via Paarl, Wellington, Tulbagh, Wolseley to get back to Worcester.”
