Johannesburg - A Gauteng man is in a critical condition after his vehicle veered off Monkey Mountain near Fochville on Friday afternoon, paramedics said.

The 28-year-old was found inside his car which had come to a stop down the embankment against trees and rocks a distance away from the road, ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said.

"After paramedics and rescue services had made their way down the embankment, they found the driver lying trapped in a critical condition."

The man was removed from the vehicle and treated with advanced life support. He was then airlifted to Baragwanath Hospital for further treatment.

Meiring said the cause of the collision was not clear.
