2017-08-31 06:01

A man was killed and five others injured this morning during a four-vehicle collision on the N2 outside of Grabouw on Wednesday morning.

ER24 paramedics, along with other services, arrived on the scene at 11h04, finding a taxi, truck and bakkie in the middle of the road. Another bakkie was found a short distance away on an embankment.

Upon closer inspection, paramedics discovered the body of a man lying outside the taxi, showing no signs of life. It is understood that the man had been pulled from the taxi by the other occupants.

Paramedics assessed the man and found that he had sustained numerous injuries and showed no signs of life. Unfortunately, nothing could be done by paramedics and the man was declared dead.

When paramedics approached the bakkie on the embankment, they found a man lying trapped inside in a critical condition. Rescue services had to use specialized equipment to free the man from the vehicle.

Once freed, paramedics treated the man and provided him with advanced life support interventions.
