Five injured in serious motor vehicle collision.
2017/12/18

Five men have been left injured, one seriously so in a collision involving a heavy duty vehicle on Blackburn Road in Durban North earlier.

Emergency services arrived on scene to find the vehicle had careened off the roadway, colliding with a concrete palisade fence.

Four occupants of the vehicle sustained injuries ranging from minor to moderate, whilst the driver, a male believed to be approximately fifty years of age, was found entrapped in the wreckage, having suffered life threatening injuries.

Paramedics from Crisis Medical, Rescue Care, Netcare911 and KZN EMS, worked fervently for over thirty minutes to stabilize the man, while emergency workers from the Ethekwini Fire and Rescue Services, cut the man free, using the 'Jaws-of-Life".

Once free, the man was placed onto a mechanical ventilator to assist him in breathing and taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital, where a team of trauma surgeons awaited his arrival.

At this stage the cause of the collision is speculative, however the South African Police Services were in attendance and will be investigating the matter further.
