A 21-year-old man was left critically injured last night following a collision between a truck and a bakkie at the Luipaard and Mooncraft intersection in Krugersdorp.
ER24 paramedics, along with the Krugersdorp Fire Services, arrived on the scene and found the wrecked bakkie in the middle of the road. The 21-year-old male driver was found lying trapped in the vehicle in a critical condition.
