A serious motor vehicle collision occurred this afternoon on the R59 highway near Meyerton.
The cause of the collision is still unknown, but it seems that the only vehicle involved in the collision, a Honda sedan, had lost control before overturning multiple times. There were two occupants in the vehicle, both aged in their thirties.
When ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene they found both men a few meters away from the vehicle as both men had been ejected from the vehicle during the roll over. The men had sustained severe injuries.
The patient man needed Advanced Life Support intervention. Due the severity of the man’s injuries and the distance to most appropriate medical facility, the decision was made to dispatch the ER24 Discovery Medicopter to the scene.
The patient was then transported to the Meyerton fire station to meet the medicopter which was on route. The patient was then airlifted to Baragwaneth hospital for further medical care.
The other occupant in the Honda was treated and transported by another ambulance service. Local law enforcement authorities were at the scene and will be investigating the incident further.
