Car rear-ends truck leaving man seriously injured, Fourways

25 June 2019 | From Arrive Alive


A man, believed to be in his 50s, was left seriously injured this morning when his light motor vehicle rear-ended a truck on the N1 north-bound near the William Nicol offramp in Fourways.
ER24 medics, along with other services, arrived on the scene at 05h53 to find the truck and light motor vehicle parked on the left-hand side of the road.
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.
Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
