Five people were injured after a bakkie overturned on the N1 in Pretoria this morning. Exact detail to the cause of the accident and preceding events will remain a subject for police investigation and comment.
Netcare 911 paramedics arrived at the scene and found the crumpled remains of the Bakkie obstructing the North bound lane of the N1, the passengers were ejected from the vehicle as it rolled and was found lying on the roadway.
After triaging it was found that one person had sustained life threatening injuries while four others escaped with minor injuries. Paramedics worked fervently to stabilise the injured at the scene and after the critically wounded was placed on a ventilator and skilfully immobilised on a trauma board, they transported the injured to various hospitals for the care that they required.
