NETCARE 911 paramedics and their rescue unit responded to a motorcycle crash along Old Main Road in Hillcrest on Thursday.
“Reports from the scene indicate that the bike had slammed into the side of a Fortuna,” said Netcare 911’s Chris Botha.

According to Botha, paramedics found the roadway obstructed with accident debris and the twisted frame of the bike and car. The biker was found on the ground with life-threatening injuries.
"Medics worked fervently to stabilise the man and after placing him on a manual ventilator, they immobilised him on a trauma board.

“The critically wounded man was then transported to a specialised hospital.”
