[CENTURION] Two injured after vehicle crashes through parkade wall
Two people were left injured after the vehicle they were travelling in crashed through a barrier wall of a parkade at a mall before plummeting down onto the road below in Centurion this evening.
When ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene shortly before 18h00, they found another medical service already at the scene. Upon further assessment, they found a vehicle lying on its roof in the road. Two women were found entrapped inside the vehicle. Paramedics managed to get the one woman out of the vehicle. She had sustained moderate injuries and was transported to hospital by another medical service at the scene.
The fire department, as well as CERT, had to extricate the other entrapped woman with the jaws of life. Once freed, the woman was found to have sustained serious injuries and was airlifted to hospital by medical helicopter for further medical care.
The exact circumstances surrounding the incident were not known to our paramedics.
