A seven-year-old boy was killed this morning on the Maropeng Road in Krugersdorp after he was hit by motorcycle.
When ER24 paramedics arrived on scene, they found the body of the young patient lying on the side of the road. Unfortunately the boy had already succumbed to his severe injuries.
The driver of the motorcycle has sustained moderate injuries after he had fallen off his vehicle. His motorbike lay a few metres away from him.
Paramedics treated the man for his injuries and transported him to Krugersdorp Hospital for further treatment.
The biker told paramedics that he had driven around the bend and was unable to avoid colliding with the child, who had apparently run across the road without noticing the oncoming vehicles.
Local authorities were on scene for further investigations.
