Woman killed by block thrown from bridge

Durban – A 24-year-old woman was killed after a concrete block was thrown from a bridge onto her car in Durban, paramedics said on Wednesday.

“The concrete block was thrown from a bridge and smashed through the windscreen and landed on the passenger’s lap,” said ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks.

The incident happened at 22:00 on the N3 westbound between Sherwood and the Spaghetti Junction.

“She sustained major injuries and her condition deteriorated after she was admitted to hospital.

“She was rushed to theatre but passed away due to massive internal injuries sustained.”

The driver was not injured, said Banks.
