The body of a motorist is still trapped inside his Nissan X-trail after it collided head on with a truck on the N17 highway between Trichardt Dam and the Tubelisha-offramp earlier this evening.

A third vehicle was also involved in the accident that happened at about 7.30pm. According to Mr Gunnie Prinsloo from StratconRisk, the driver of the police’s forensic team is on the scene.
