Three people were left injured last night following a three-vehicle collision on the M6 Victoria Road between Camps Bay and Llandudno in the Western Cape.
ER24 medics, along with the Life Healthcare, Metro Rescue and Cape Town Fire Services, received the call at 20h31 and immediately responded.
On arrival, medics found the three vehicles in the middle of the road. One of the vehicles had caught alight in the collision.
Medics assessed the patients and found one man lying trapped inside his vehicle in a critical condition. A woman was found lying near another vehicle in a serious condition while a second woman had sustained moderate injuries.
Fire Services had to use specialized equipment to free the man from the vehicle.
Once freed, paramedics treated the patients and provided the critically and seriously injured patients with advanced life support interventions. After treatment, the patients were transported to nearby hospitals for further care.
