This afternoon just before 4pm EMER-G-MED paramedics responded to reports of a serious collision on Allandale Road and Greg Street, in Midrand.
On arrival paramedics found that seven people had been injured after a bakkie and a light motor vehicle collided, which left the car seriously damaged.
A four-year-old was assessed and was found to have sustained critical injuries, including serious head and abdominal trauma.
Paramedics worked to stabilise the critically injured child, who was intubated and put on a ventilator while the Netcare911 Aeromedical Helicopter was called to the scene.
Once stable the child was airlifted to a specialist trauma hospital for further management.
The remaining six patients sustained only minor to moderate injuries and were transported by EMER-G-MED and other services to a variety of nearby facilities for further care.
The exact cause of the collision is unclear and will be investigated by local authorities.
