Man dies after motorised wheelchair hit
Cape Town - A disabled man was killed on Sunday on the N7 highway near Goodwood, Cape Town, paramedics said.
Around 03:00, paramedics were flagged down by bystanders, said ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson.
They had come across a man lying in the middle of the road, on the white line separating the dual carriageway.
He was in his late 50s and had been travelling over the N7 bridge in Goodwood on his wheelchair when the accident happened, she said.
He was knocked by a car and was flung from his wheelchair which was found a short distance away. The man's injuries were too severe for paramedics to be able to help him. He was declared dead on the scene.
The man regularly travelled along the highway in his motorised wheelchair, Jackson said.
