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.
