ER24 responded to an accident at
Contermanskloof road late last night.
One person was left with extensive
and critical injuries after a truck and VW Golf collided.
It is still unclear as to what
caused the accident but local authorities are investigating the matter.
ER24’s Vanessa Jackson said when paramedics
and rescuers arrived on the scene, they found the Golf entangled into the front
of the truck and the driver was trapped.
“It was more than an hour that paramedics
had to battle to try to get the man out of the vehicle” Jackson said.
A crane had to be used to lift the
front of the truck off of the Golf.
“The man was then transported to the
Groote Schuur Hospital, in a
critical condition; the truck driver was not injured in the incident” Jackson added.
