A number of other vehicles were also involved in the collision.
There have been no reports of fatalities as yet.
The News is standing by for more information from the scene.
In the meantime, members on scene report heavy congestion on the roads leading to the intersection as the cans of Schweppes and packets of food are still obstructing the road.
The roads affected are the R28 downhill near Silverstar Casino coming from Mount Usambara, the N14 coming from Pretoria heading towards Krugersdorp, the N14 coming from Netcare Pinehaven towards Sasol Pinehaven, and Hendrik Potgieter Road coming from Farm City towards Cradlestone Mall.
This is not the first time trucks carrying food have crashed at this spot.
