Motorists travelling on the N1 south from Louis Trichardt are warned that they can expect traffic delays due to a collision involving two trucks. Smoke could be seen billowing out into the air for kilometres away after one of the trucks caught fire.
It is not sure if anybody was injured, but traffic has started backing up in both direction of the Collision for hundreds of metres. The accident occurred a couple of kilometres away from the Mampakuil weighbridge.
The accident follows an earlier travel warning issued to motorists this morning on social media of an increased number of heavy vehicles travelling on the N1 north to Beitbridge. The traffic congestion is apparently caused by trucks travelling to Botswana having to cross into the country through the Beitbridge border post as the bridge at Groblersbrug is closed due to flood damage.
