[DALTON] Three injured in bakkie roll-over on farm road
Three men in their mid 20s suffered minor to critical injuries after they lost control of the bakkie they were driving on a farm road outside Dalton, north of PMB early this morning.
ER24 paramedics arrived at 07:48 to find provincial EMS already on the scene treating a critically injured patient. A second man was found to have suffered minor injuries. A third man had strayed from the scene and was found 500m away, in the sugarcane fields, having collapsed from his injuries. He was treated using Advanced Life Support interventions, before all three were transported by ER24 and Provincial EMS services to Applesbosch Hospital for further care.
The canine unit was brought in to find an alleged missing fourth person, but this was later discovered to be a false claim and the search was called off. The South African Police Services were also on scene for further investigations.
