[R545] One killed, one injured in a single-vehicle rollover
One person has sustained fatal injuries and another person sustained critical injuries following a single-vehicle rollover on the R545 between Kriel and Ogies in the early hours of this morning.
When ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene shortly after 01h00, they found a vehicle lying on its roof off the roadway. Two patients were found lying outside of the vehicle. It is believed that they were ejected. One of the patients had sustained fatal injuries and was declared dead at the scene. The other patient was found to have sustained critical injuries and paramedics immediately initiated advanced life support interventions. ER24 transported the patient to hospital for further medical care.
The exact circumstances surrounding the incident were not known to our paramedics, but local authorities were on scene for further investigations.
