A WOMAN who was walking along the road in downtown Pietermaritzburg yesterday afternoon was knocked down by an out-of-control vehicle after it had been involved in a collision.

ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson said it is believed that a Golf and BMW collided at the intersection of Masukwana and Jabu Ndlovu streets when one of the vehicles ran a red light.

She said that despite the force of the accident none of the three occupants of the cars was seriously injured.

The woman was knocked down as the BMW skidded across the road after the collision occurred.

“She suffered multiple injuries and was in a serious condition.

“ She was treated by the advanced life support paramedic at the scene and was taken to nearby Northdale Hospital for further medical treatment.”

Jackson said the woman was in a stable condition when she was handed over to hospital staff.

It is not clear who was at fault in the accident. — Witness Reporter.
