One person was killed after the scooter he was travelling in collided with a truck on Modderfontein Road in Birchleigh, Kempton Park on Friday, paramedic services have said.

ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said medics arrived at the scene before 15:00 where other services had already arrived.

He said paramedics found the body of a man, believed to be in his 40s, lying a few metres away from his scooter.

"The truck that had collided with the man was found parked a short distance away. Medics assessed the man and found that he had sustained numerous injuries and showed no signs of life. Unfortunately, nothing could be done for him and he was declared dead."

The driver of the truck escaped injury.

Meiring said the details surrounding the incident were unknown but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
