A man has been killed and
another was left in a critical condition after their
bakkie was hit by a large truck on the N11 approximately two kilometres outside
of New Castle in KwaZulu-Natal.
“Paramedics of ER24 and local
rescue services had arrived on the scene, found that the two men were still
trapped in the vehicle. One of the men was rapidly extricated from the vehicle.
Unfortunately, his condition deteriorated and paramedics initiated CPR. Sadly,
a bit later, he died on scene.” ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said.
Vermaak added that local fire
and rescue services had to use hydraulic rescue equipment in order to remove
the other occupant. He was rushed off to Madadeni Provincial Hospital.
Local authorities attended the
incident and will conduct an investigation.
