VEREENIGING - A serious truck crash on the N3 northbound (towards Johannesburg) near the Vaaldraai/Vereeniging interchange yesterday morning, resulted in road closures well into the evening. ArriveAlive said in a statement the two heavy motor vehicles collided and subsequently burst into flames. Traffic was diverted for clean-up operations to clear the scene. N3 Toll Concession spokesperson, Anita Heyl, told IOL, clean-up operations continued on Friday morning, and a single lane has been opened. Emergency services were on the scene, but the extent of damage and injuries are not yet known. The South African National Roads Agency is currently busy with repairs on the N3 between Sanctuary and Link roads which are expected to improve the safety of the road, especially ahead of the festive season.
