[BLOEMFONTEIN] Head-on collision leaves one dead, two injured
A head-on collision between two bakkies on Rudolf Greyling Road in East End, Bloemfontein this evening has left a 25-year-old man dead, a 42-year-old man in a critical condition and a third man in his 50s, seriously injured.
ER24 paramedics, along with other private services, arrived on the scene at 20:05 to find the three men entrapped in their vehicles. The driver of a white single-cab bakkie was found to have suffered multiple, fatal injuries and was unfortunately declared dead on arrival. The 42-year-old passenger was extricated by the Fire Department using the Jaws Of Life and treated using Advanced Life Support interventions. The driver of the second bakkie, a black double-cab, was extracted and also treated with Advanced Life Support interventions before both were transported to a private hospital in the area by both Provincial EMS and ER24.
The South African Police Services were also on the scene for further investigations.
