A 40-year-old man is in a critical condition this morning after he was knocked off his bicycle at the Beyers Naude and Malope Road intersection in Johannesburg.
ER24 paramedics, as well as other services, arrived on scene and found the cyclist lying in the road with his bicycle lying a few metres away. The light motor vehicle that had collided with the cyclist had parked off to the side of the road roughly 100 metres away.
On assessment, paramedics discovered that the patient had sustained a number of fractures and lay in a critical condition.
Paramedics treated and stabilised the patient as well as providing him with advanced life support interventions.
Once stable, the patient was airlifted by the ER24 helicopter to Johannesburg General Hospital for urgent medical treatment.
The cause of the collision will be investigated by local authorities.
