[MARAISBURG] – Car and SUV collide leaving six injured.
Six people were left injured, one of them critically, when a light motor vehicle and SUV collided at the 5th and 6th Road intersection in Maraisburg, west of Johannesburg.
ER24 personnel arrived on the scene after 14h30 to find the SUV on the side of the road against a pole while the light motor vehicle was found in the road. A woman in her 20s and a 9-year-old girl were found lying in the light motor vehicle while four other patients were found walking around on the scene.
ER24 personnel assessed the patients and found that the woman in her 20s vital signs were rapidly diminishing, having sustained numerous injuries. The 9-year-old girl had also sustained numerous injuries and was in a serious condition. The four other patients were found with minor to moderate injuries.
ER24 medics carefully extricated the two from the light motor vehicle, began their treatment and immediately initiated CPR interventions on the woman in her 20s. Fortunately, after some time, the woman’s vital signs returned.
Once all the patients had been treated, they were transported to Charlotte Maxeke and Helen Joseph Provincial Hospitals for further care.
The exact details surrounding this incident are not yet known but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
