The N2 near King Shaka International Airport was the scene of a horrific accident late last night.
The driver of a Mercedes Benz burnt to death after he apparently overtook two cars heading towards the Umvoti Toll Plaza at about 11pm.
There have been allegations that the driver was speeding but this will be subject to the police investigation.
The Mercedes Benz smashed into the back of a Unitrans truck and burst into flames.
Netcare911, Rapid Care and fire and emergency services were among those assisting on the scene.
