The rescue services were alerted on Thursday morning as a serious car crash occurred on the Heidelberg road (R23 road) in Gauteng. According to the reports, the accident resulted in two deaths; both victims are the adult males.
“On arrival, the lifeless body of the driver was still trapped behind the steering wheel, the other body was outside next to the vehicle, while four patients were lying across the scene, “ William Ntladi, the City of Ekurhuleni manager media liaison for emergency services, said.
Three of four injured people were road transported to the local hospital, where they have already been receiving medical treatment. The last heavy wounded — who appears to be in a critical state — was airlifted to Charlotte Maxeke Hospital.
The hydraulic rescue tools were used in order to free the driver’s body from the wreckage.
