ON Thursday, 24 March at around 7am Netcare 911 paramedics received a call for a head-on collision on the N2 South Winklespruit off-ramp.

Reports from the scene indicate that the driver of the car was heading towards Winklespruit on the R603 when he veered off the road, hurtled across the grass verge and collided head-on with a truck on the off-ramp.

“Paramedics arrived at the scene and were amazed to find that the two occupants from the vehicle had escaped with only minor injuries. After medics treated them at the scene they transported the men to an area hospital,” said Chris Botha, media liaison officer - Netcare 911.
