Tow Truck Driver Escapes Injury After Tree Falls on Vehicle


A tow truck driver had a narrow escape after a tree fell onto of his vehicle on West Street heading into Pietermaritzburg just past the Duzi Bridge in the early hours of this morning.

ER24 paramedic rushed to the scene and found the tree had fallen across the road and on to the truck causing extensive damage to the body of the vehicle and roof. The driver was slightly shaken up but was able to walk away with no injuries.

It is believed that heavy winds caused the tree to break away and landed on the vehicle. This is the second incident were a tree has fallen on a car in a week in the Pietermaritzburg region.
