A 32 year old man has been killed after his car overturned on the N1 highway just before the Malibongwe off-ramp this morning.
Johannesburg Emergency Services say the car rolled, went off the highway and landed six metres down on Rabbie Street, leading to Randburg central.
The driver died on the scene and three passengers were rushed to Helen Joseph Hospital in a critical condition.
Meanwhile the body of a policeman, who was swept away when a bridge over the River Derwent in Workington collapsed, has been found.
The officer was trying to help a group of people who were having difficulties. Assistant Chief Constable Jerry Graham says the force has taken the news badly.
