Johannesburg - A man was killed and a woman injured in a motorbike accident on Haldon Road in Bloemfontein on Sunday afternoon, paramedics said.

ER 24 spokesperson Derrick Banks said paramedics arrived on the scene and found the mother and son lying in the road with the motorbike a few metres away.

"Paramedics assessed the two and found the male, who is believed to be the son of the lady, had already succumbed to his injuries and was declared deceased on the scene," Banks said.

"The lady was treated for suspected neck and back injuries and was transported to a nearby hospital for further medical care."
