At just before 9am this morning the BCI Incident Support Team received a call from a community member advising of a pedestrian vehicle accident on Hendrik Potgieter Road opposite Retail Crossing Shopping Centre.
The community member said there was a man trapped underneath a taxi and the taxi driver was wiping blood off his taxi.
The BCI Security Incident Support Team rushed to the scene to assist. Upon arrival the patient had managed to crawl out from underneath the taxi and was in excruciating pain having been run over and dragged several metres under the taxi.
He was assessed by the BCI Security Medic whilst our Medical Partners from ER24 EMS (Pty) Ltd. were enroute.
He was stabilised on scene before being transported by ER24 to a local hospital for further treatment.
Officers from Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department - JMPD arrived to investigate the events leading up to and the cause of the accident.
Thank you to everyone that assisted on scene from Netcare911 and Firsthelp
We would also like to thank the Good Samaritan that stopped to help whilst other drivers just drove past this severely injured man trapped under the taxi.
