A motorbike rider, believed to be in his fifties, was tragically killed this morning at the intersection of Carl Cronje and Frans Conradie Streets in Bellville.
Shortly after 10am paramedics from ER24 arrived on the scene where they found two off duty medical doctors performing CPR on the rider in the middle of the road. Paramedics assisted with advanced life support. It is understood that a truck collided with the rider and dragged him for several meters underneath the truck.
Despite all the efforts of the doctors and paramedics on scene, they were unable to revive the man. He was later declared dead on the scene. The truck driver was not injured in the incident. He was later transported from the scene to receive counselling.
The exact cause of the collision will be investigated by the local police that attended the collision.
