Earlier this morning Emer-G-Med paramedics together with Netcare911, responded to the scene of a serious motor vehicle collision on the Bellville Road off-ramp of the M7 Westbound Carriageway.
On arrival on scene two heavy-duty vehicles were found to have collided leaving a driver of one of the vehicles entrapped in the wreckage.
A rescue technician from Netcare 911 cut the man free using the Jaws-of-life, whilst Emer-G-Med paramedics worked to stabilize him.
Once extricated and stabilized he was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital for further care.
The cause of the collision is unknown and will form the subject of a South African Police Services investigation.
