[BOOYSENS] One dead, six injured in collision

A man in his 30s has died and a family of six have suffered serious to critical injuries in a rear-end vehicle collision on the M1 North, near the Xavier Street offramp in Booysens, Johannesburg last night.

ER24 paramedics were on the scene at 22:40 along with the Fire Department and other private services. A man in a bakkie was found to have suffered fatal injuries and was declared dead on arrival. Three of the six patients from the light motor vehicle were entrapped and the Jaws Of Life were required to extricate them from the wreak. The Fire Department along with ER24 Rescue and another private service helped with the extraction. Two minors and four adults were found to have suffered serious to critical injuries and five Advanced Life Support paramedics on-scene were required to treat and stabilise the patients before they were all transported to Charlotte Maxeke Hospital for further treatment.

JMPD were on the scene for further investigations.
