A road worker has been left in a critical condition after being involved in an alleged hit and run incident in Fourways.
It is believed that the man was working on the roadside, on the corners of Witkoppen and Main Road in Fourways, when a passing vehicle struck him and sped off.
ER24 paramedics responded to the scene to find a man, thought to be in his early 20’s, lying face down on the side of the road. He was barely conscious with multiple critical injuries visibly obvious. Advanced Life Support paramedics treated the patient on the scene, stabilizing his condition, before being airlifted by the Discovery Medicopter to Milpark Hospital.
The Johannesburg Metropolitan Police were on scene to take statements, and will be conducting the necessary investigations.
