A man was critically injured in a hijacking this morning at bridge two on the N2, near Mtunzini.
The man, an employee of a courier company, was hijacked by four armed men who shot the driver and fled, heading north with the company car.
“The man was shot in the upper body and is in a critical conditional,” said Dylan Meyrick of IPSS Medical Rescue, who was at the scene of the shooting.
The highway was cleared for a helicopter to land to take the man to Melomed Richards Bay hospital.
