On Thursday night Emer-G-Med paramedics responded to the R114 near the Mnandi area for a serious motor vehicle collision.

Reports from the scene are that a light delivery vehicle and a truck collided, leaving the driver of the LDV entrapped in the wreckage.

The Jaws-of-life were needed to cut him free whilst advanced life support paramedics worked to stabilize him. Once stabilized he was transported rapidly by ambulance to a nearby hospital for further care.
