Thank you to the flight and receiving crews.

Nothing breaks my heart more than seeing people and their unnecessary comments on such posts. “They were drunk”, “they were speeding “, after wona then what? A family is grieving, have respect guys. One day koba inina

The cooler box on the red vehicle that was rear-ended and the driver ran away paints a vivid picture 😒

From Mthunzi to Dokodweni ayi ziyenzeka ngozi. I'm a local resident and I'm using this road daily it so heartbreaking to see this happening often and bantu abasindi. There's something wrong kulendawo.

That stretch of freeway between Zinkwazi and Mandeni without median barriers is proving to be a high accident zone

The impatience of one driver has yet again lead to the injury and loss of life to the innocent. Our roads are proving to be horrendous lanes of death.

Condolences to the families. May God be with the IPSS response teams during the Easter weekend πŸ™

So sad, Traveling north bound, the left lane is so poorly repaired you have to drive on the right lane. It's almost like small speed bumps. We pay exorbitant toll fees for bad roads and no barriers.

Powerful engines makes drivers think they're invincible. Patience, Consideration and Obeying the Rules of the Road, seem to be non existent, resulting in innocent people dying.

Too much accidents happening on this Zinkwazi stretch, and so many lives have been lost. it must be regarded as a High Accident Zone... This stretch needs a cleansing ceremony or what so ever related.... My condolences to the mourning families 😒😒😒😒

Condolences to the families who lost loved ones in this horrific accident πŸ˜₯ Thank you IPSS for you all do! Was sitting in the traffic today with so many individuals using the yellow lane and saw how four IPSS vehicles struggled to get to the scene due to this.

Rip condolances to the famalies may the injured recover time the law enforcement and road traffic authorities got together and did something consructive about this section of road ideally a fence in the centre would be the answer funds and time law enforcement needs to be seen during these times in days gone by the presence of a blue light had motorists behaving

Its very sad because we where behind theres vehicles 😭😭so many accidents today I'm even struggling to sleep. 😭😭

The biggest solution to these accidents is that government should not allow vehicle that are capable of driving over 120km per hour. And make it standard to all cars that maximum speed limit in South Africa πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦ is 100km/h no matter what road you driving. This will help reduce accidents on the road. We don’t need any car capable of reaching a speed over 120 km per hour.

Oh no - πŸ˜₯. Take it easy if you have to travel on the roads - enough sadness in this last year to last us a life time. Condolenses to all their loved ones. πŸ™

Roads need barriers there’s to much traffic

And it’s just the beginning of Easter weekend 😒

Big up to Ipss response so fast,, condolences to those families,, Bt guys if u still on the road take its slow be patient each other

Always 😭 oh God let people drive with more patience.

This highway should be closed completely up until the road is repaired

And still people drive like hooligans on the N2. I fear for my son s life as he travels this road daily 🀬

Why always on that road?

These latest cars are being driven at the speed of 150 to 170 in the N2 and it seems its the normal speed nawadays

Is that stretch between zinkwazi and mandeni haunted or what?

Why always on this stretch of road.

Condolences to their families who were waiting for them to spend the weekend😒

Oh hhe ingane yam ayikafiki bakith

This is so sad and so the carnage on the roads start 😭😭😭

Too sad condolences to the family roads definitely need barriers

Zero sympathy for a child killer. He was on borrowed time as is.

It’s only getting worse..... thank you to all those first responders for your efforts and bravery. If only our country would do something about this industry and it’s violence we wouldn’t have to send first responders to such dangerous situations.

Good riddance
