ON Tuesday 17 February at 3.03pm, Netcare 911 paramedics responded to a vehicle that had overturned on the N2 South opposite Panorama Park in Illovo Beach.

“A report from a witness indicates that another vehicle collided into the rear of the bakkie and then left the scene. On impact the bakkie overturned rolling several times down the highway,” Chris Botha, Media Liaison Officer stated.

He said paramedics found the man lying on the verge with serious injuries.
They treated the patient at the scene and immobilised him on a trauma board.

“Paramedics then transported him to a nearby hospital under the constant care of a Netcare 911 advanced life support paramedic,” Botha said.
