A forty-year-old man is fighting for his life following a pedestrian accident on the R102 between Verulam and Canelands this morning in Kwa-Zulu Natal. Details surrounding the accident is still unclear at this stage and will remain the subject of a police investigation.
Netcare 911 paramedics arrived on the scene and found the critically injured man laying on the roadway after he was knocked over by a motor vehicle.
Due to the extensive injuries he had sustained, a medical helicopter was activated to airlift the critically injured man to hospital for the urgent medical care that he required.
The traffic on the north bound was severely affected, as all the lanes were closed down for the helicopter to land.
