Accident victim robbed in Durban

2013-10-22 00:00

PARAMEDICS say a woman was beaten and robbed of her jewellery as she sat stunned in her car after being involved in an accident in Durban yesterday.

Garrith Jamieson of Rescue Care said paramedics responding to the accident found badly damaged cars obstructing four lanes at the intersection of Dr Yusuf Dadoo (Grey) and Dr A..B Xuma (Commercial Road) streets.

“Two patients suffered possible fractures and advanced life support intervention was needed to assist in stabilising them,” he said.

Jamieson said it appeared bystanders took advantage of the situation by attacking a woman involved in the accident, and robbing her of her jewellery.

“Unfortunately she was assaulted and robbed of her jewellery after the collision,” he said.

Jamieson said six cars were involved in the collision, the cause of which is being investigated.
