20 Joburg car crashes in 15 hours

2011-08-27 16:36
Johannesburg - Paramedics attended to 20 accidents in 15 hours in Johannesburg, ER24 spokesperson Andre Visser said on Saturday.

"Paramedics had their hands full as they responded to accidents from 17:00 on Friday to 08:00 on Saturday," he said.

A bakkie was rammed from behind by a Sedan in Newlands on Friday at 19:00.

A 44-year-old man sustained serious injuries to the chest.

Meanwhile, another bakkie collided with a Jeep before it overturned and rolled over four passengers at an intersection near Waterfall Village in Roodepoort. The passengers were waiting at an intersection.

Visser said all the occupants of the vehicle were treated on the scene for slight injuries.

In another accident two men in their 20s were seriously hurt when a Chevrolet Spark collided head-on with a Hyundai in Roodepoort shortly before midnight.

Visser said paramedics found the driver of the Hyundai trapped inside the wreckage.

"They had to break the windows and force open the door in order to remove him," he said.

Four people were seriously injured and taken to Flora Clinic.
