Three people suffered critical injuries, including a 6-month-old baby.

Two others also sustained moderate injuries after a horror crash on the N2, near Zinkwazi in KwaZulu-Natal.

It is alleged that one of the drivers lost control of his car as the road was wet, causing it to drift into oncoming traffic, it then crashed into another car on the roadside.

IPSS Medical Rescue said the car was torn in half and the front part of the car was found on the opposite side of the roadway.
