Man seriously injured after car rear-ends truck


    According to ER24, the truck and light motor vehicle were parked on the left-hand side of the road when the emergency services arrived on the scene.

    ER24 communications officer Russel Meiring said, “On closer inspection, medics found a man, believed to be in his 50s, lying trapped inside the light motor vehicle in a serious condition.

    “Rescue medics had to use extrication gear to free the man from the vehicle. Once freed, medics treated the man and provided him with pain-relief medication before he was transported to a nearby private hospital for further care. The driver of the truck, fortunately, escaped injury.”
