At 06h59 on Saturday morning Netcare 91 paramedics responded to a collision on the N1 in Murrayhill Gauteng. Reports from the scene indicate that a truck that was riding along the N1 slammed into the rear of a stationary truck.

Paramedics arrived at the scene and found accident debris and the twisted cab of the truck consistent with that of a high impact collision obstructing the highway. After the patients were examined it was found that one person had sustained life-threatening injuries while another was in a serious condition. The critically wounded patient was airlifted with the Netcare medical helicopter to a specialised hospital for further care. The other patient was transported by another ambulance service to hospital for further treatment.
