EMERGENCY services on the South Coast were kept busy over the weekend as they attended to several accident scenes.

“It was a very busy preseason weekend for emergency services who attended multiple accidents all over the South Coast,” said Belinda Catchpole of Kwazulu Private Ambulance.

There were no serious injuries reported for the accidents in Ramsgate, Margate and Gcilima.

However, one person was taken to hospital after an under-age driver crashed into a taxi in Port Edward.

In two other incidents, in Marburg and Umtentweni, pedestrians with serious injuries were transported to hospital.

In Hibberdene, four people with serious injuries were stabilised, while two others were declared dead on scene. “A biker was also injured in a collision with a light motor vehicle and a cyclist’s brakes failed when he crashed into a car,” she said.

A major accident in Izotsha area left 22 people injured. “All emergency services worked around the clock to ensure the safe transport of patients to various hospitals.

We at Kwazulu Private Ambulance thank every emergency service for their assistance over the weekend and wish you all a safe and festive season ahead.”
