A modus operandi similar to others reported since the weekend was used in this latest attack, according to Mohlala, in which armed men emerged from the bush and instructed drivers to get out of vehicles or risk being burned inside.
The drivers chose to abandon the trucks, which were then set on fire.
No one has been arrested yet and the police are continuing investigations. Mohlala said the motive is not known at this time.
The incident of burning a truck on the R59 northbound near a residential home was not related to the truck attacks. It was reported that the truck caught fire after a tire exploded. Police said in response to a TimesLIVE inquiry that the driver was able to stop the truck and call emergency services for help.
In the latest incident, it brings the total number of trucks burned in four days to 20.
KwaZulu-Natal Police confirmed on Monday that two trucks were set on fire while waiting in line on the N2 road.
