[TARLTON] One killed, multiple injured in a four-vehicle collision
One person has been killed and eight others were left injured following a four-vehicle collision on the R24 in Tarlton this evening.
When ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene shortly after 20h30, they found multiple patients at the scene. Upon further assessment, they found a man seated in the driver’s seat of the one vehicle showing no signs of life. He was declared dead at the scene by paramedics. Three others were found to have sustained serious injuries. Two were still entrapped in the vehicle and the West Rand fire department had to extricate them using the jaws of life. Two medical helicopters were activated to airlift two of the seriously injured patients to the hospital for further medical care. Five others were found to have sustained injuries ranging from minor to moderate.
ER24, as well as various other medical services, treated the patients at the scene before transporting them to hospital for further medical care.
