Man dies in Randpark Ridge crash

2012-03-24 16:59

Johannesburg - A man died and three others were critically injured when their car rolled in Randpark Ridge, paramedics said on Saturday.

The man who died was driving and was flung out the car and into a tree, Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks said.

The accident happened in Cedar Road on Friday night.

One of the critically injured passengers was a 15-year-old girl who was airlifted in a Netcare helicopter to hospital. The two other passengers, both men, were taken to hospital by ambulance.

"It appears the car rolled several times," Wicks said.

The jaws of life were used by rescuers to free the trapped passengers from the car.

    I would like to comment on the inaccuracy of this report. Many facts here are incorrect... Myself and my fiance were there as soon as the accident happened. I will not however state details of the preceding events due to respect for the families. But i can say the driver was a young guy and so were all of his FEMALE passengers. There were no other men in the car! The accident also happened on Randpark Drive and NOT Seder road! It took over 30 Mins for paramedics to arrive and the poor girl who had sever head injuries was in the car waiting an hour and a half for jaws of life to be used to get her out. This also took a further 30mins before she could be airlifted to hospital. I must however comment that the paramedics handled the situation very well and did a wonderful job. I cant believe anything reported on here anymore. How many other stories have you gotten wrong.

      Thanks Katelyn I lived in Seder Str for 6 years and went to Rand Park High School, I hope the people will be ok shame, I'm worried if it's anyone I might have gone to school with but nonetheless I hope they'll be ok. As for this story being totally opposite to yours, wow News24 still indeed continues to give incorrect news, I remember they told a wrong story about the young lady last year that was hurt in Fourways. Nah guys please check your Reporters Aseblief.
