One man was killed and three others were left critically injured in an accident o the R511 in Lonehill on Sunday.It is believed that a vehicle was speeding on the construction road when it drove into a ditch. This resulted in the vehicle becoming airborne and colliding with a concrete barrier.

ER24  spokesperson Russel Meiring said ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene to find a mangled vehicle on a construction road, one of the occupants sustained serious head injuries and was declared dead on the scene. Another man sustained critical injuries including lacerations both to his head and chest. The two remaining suffered only minor injuries.

Meiring added that ER24 paramedics jumped into action treating the critical patients. Jaws of life equipment had to be used to free some of the occupants before further treatment could continue.

“Once freed paramedics placed the critical man on the spine board before he was transported to a hospital in Johannesburg for urgent treatment. The remainder of  the patients were treated and transported by various other services to hospital” Russell Meiring added.
