Motorists can expect major delays on the N2 at Houw Hoek Pass near Grabouw on Monday [January 18] after a serious accident which has allegedly claimed the life of one passenger. The road heading from Hermanus to Houw Hoek was closed to allow a helicopter to land to carry injured passengers.

Images shared by 1-Second CPT Daily Safety and Security Alerts on Facebook, show a truck overturned and goods from the truck strew all over the road. It is alleged that the truck driver’s assistant was killed and the driver is in a serious condition, but this is yet to be confirmed.

Traffic services are requesting motorists to use alternate roads to avoid adding to the congestions.
