Traffic on the N1 north was severely backed-up by lunch time after a six-car pile-up after the Rigel Avenue exit.

The accident occurred between the Rigel Avenue and Garsfontein Road off-ramps, east of Pretoria.

Emer-G-Med spokesperson Braam Kruger said no one was injured.

“The cause of the accident is not clear, but it suspected the wet weather played a part. Four lanes of the highway are still closed,” he said by 13:30.

“The scene is still being investigated by police, and traffic will be heavily affected for some time as a result.”
