A member of the provincial parliament and a member of the Democratic Alliance KwaZulu-Natal, Mbali Ntuli, took over on Twitter to explain how she survived when she hit the truck.
The incident happened in N3, about two miles before the toll station Marianhill on Friday afternoon.
Ntuli shared the image of his car, who was involved in an accident with seven others. She also mentioned that she was bruised "on the one hand and that I had some soft tissue injuries".
She was surprised: "I just survived when the truck hit my head."
