PARAMEDICS on the lower South Coast attended to several accidents on Saturday starting with an accident involving three cars in St Mike’s at 9am.

“While being treated by paramedics another person was assaulted at the accident scene. He was also treated and transported to hospital,” said Belinda Catchpole of Kwazulu Private Ambulance.

Catchpole said paramedics then attended to a “side-swipe crash” in Izotsha where a woman sustained injuries. The accident occurred at about 11am.

On Saturday at 10.30pm, Netcare 911 paramedics received a call for a two-vehicle collision at the Merlewood intersection. Five people had sustained injuries ranging from serious to minor.

In another incident, three people were injured in Margate on Tuesday afternoon when a car crashed into a pole along Wartski Drive.

“Paramedics arrived at the scene and found that the vehicle had taken out a pole, the wreckage of the vehicle then came to rest on its side on the grass verge,” said Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha.

“The three occupants that were injured, reportedly left by private transport to a nearby hospital before our arrival,” he added. - Supplied.
