Durban – Two boys riding their bicycles on Circle Drive in Pinetown were badly injured after being struck by a car on Saturday. ER24 spokesperson, Werner Vermaak, said that the boys, aged 11 and 12-years-old, may have been dragged under the car after it hit them. "At approximately 13:00, paramedics arrived on the scene where they found the two boys seated in a nearby taxi," he said. “It is understood that they were riding their bicycles when they fell and a car collided with them. One of the boys sustained several burns and abrasions. The other sustained a severe laceration to his head and a possible fractured arm," Vermaak said.
