A truck carrying a wind turbine tumbled off a mountain at Piekenierskloof Pass in Citrusdal on Thursday morning, authorities said.

The truck driver had been carrying the abnormal load along with a traffic escort on the N7 when he lost control, said Western Cape traffic chief Kenny Africa.

After being freed from the wreckage, he died on his way to the hospital.
