ON 24 December, 2015, Netcare 911 paramedics responded to a crash on the N2 south at the Adams Road off-ramp in Amanzimtoti.

Reports from the scene indicate that the people were on their way to Port Edward. As they rounded a bend, they found that the traffic had come to a stop. Their vehicle then slammed into the rear of another vehicle.

“Netcare 911 paramedics arrived at the scene and found that the unrestrained passenger, a female eight months pregnant, was thrown forward into the windshield. After medics examined her, they found she had sustained serious injuries,” said Chris Botha, media liaison officer - Netcare 911.

He added that medics immobilised the patient on a trauma board and then extricated her through the rear of the hatch- back. After she was stabilised at the scene they transported her to hospital.
