AN injured accident victim was lucky to have a passing chiropractor on hand to help place him on a portable bed yesterday, after a crash on the N2, near Umgababa.

Paramedics said three people were injured when two cars collided.

“One vehicle was carrying a family of four on their way to the Wild Coast for the holiday,” said Netcare911 spokesperson Chris Botha.

“The other was a small car with seven occupants on their way to a church service.”

He said that emergency workers arrived at the scene to find one person still trapped in a vehicle while the others were at the side of the highway.

The injured were stabilised on the scene before they were taken to a hospital in the area.
