This morning, a man was critically injured when a truck overturned and crashed into a guard house at the William Nicol and Kingfisher intersection in Fourways.

ER24 and other services arrived at 09h00 to find that a truck had crashed through a guard house and wall and had overturned. The load of alcohol the truck had been transporting was spread across the road.

Medics assessed the patients and found that a male pedestrian that had been near the guard house was in critical condition while the truck driver and a security guard had escaped injury.

The pedestrian was treated and provided with advanced life support interventions before he was transported to a nearby hospital for further care.

Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
