[FOURWAYS] – Rear-end collision leaves one dead, another critical.
This morning, a woman was killed, and another left critically injured when a light motor vehicle rear-ended a truck on the N1 highway before the William Nicol turnoff in Fourways.
ER24 and other services arrived on the scene shortly after 10h00 to find the truck and light motor vehicle in the middle of the busy road.
Upon closer inspection, medics found two women lying in the front of the light motor vehicle.
Medics assessed the women and found that the driver had already succumbed to her numerous injuries. Nothing could be done for her, and she was declared dead. The passenger was found with several wounds and was in critical condition.
The Fire Services had to use specialised equipment to free the woman from the car. Once released, the woman was treated and provided with advanced life support interventions before she was airlifted by a private medical helicopter to a nearby hospital.
The driver of the truck, fortunately, escaped injury.
Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
