One critical, two others injured in head-on collision
A 28-year-old man is in a critical condition while two others escaped serious injuries following a head-on collision on the Pomona Road in Kempton Park. ER24 paramedics, along with other services, arrived on scene and found the two wrecked vehicles in the middle of the one way road. On assessment, paramedics discovered that the driver of the one of the vehicles lay in the front seat in a critical condition, with multiple injuries. Two occupants from the second vehicle had sustained only minor to moderate injuries. Paramedics set out treating the patients while providing the critically injured patients with advanced life support interventions. The ER24 helicopter was called in to airlift the critically injured patient to Mediclinic Sandton for urgent treatment. The remaining two patients were transported to a nearby hospital for further observations. The cause of the collision is not yet known but local authorities were on scene for further investigations.
