Johannesburg – A motorbike rider was killed on Saturday afternoon on Ontdekkers Road near Beacon Street in Florida North in Roodepoort, Gauteng paramedics said.

ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said paramedics arrived on the scene and found the rider lying a few metres away from his bike

It appeared as if he collided into the side of a garbage vehicle in a nearby service road, said Vermaak.  

"While attending to him he went into cardiac arrest and paramedics initiated CPR. Sadly, despite all the efforts of paramedics on the scene they could not revive the rider,” said Veermaak.

He sustained multiple injuries and was later declared dead on the scene.
