A truck carrying explosive materials on the R50 between Delmas and Leandra caught alight on 12 November. When ER24 EMS (Pty) Ltd paramedics arrived on the scene shortly after 22h00, they found a crater spanning several metres in the middle of the road with debris from the truck spread across the entire area.
Thanks to quick thinking on the driver’s part, when he noticed flames coming from the trailer, he was able to stop and exit his truck and warn other motorists of the impending danger.
