Earlier on Saturday Emer-G-Med paramedics responded to the scene of a serious motor vehicle collision on the N12 national highway.

Reports from the scene are that a truck and a light motor vehicle collided, leaving one of the occupants of the LMV entrapped in the wreckage.

Advanced Life Support paramedics worked fervently to stabilize him whilst he was cut free using the Jaws-of-life.

Once free he was taken to a nearby hospital for further care.

Five others suffered injuries ranging from minor to moderate and were treated and stabilized on scene before being taken by various ambulances to nearby receiving medical facilities for further care.
