Trauma Response Africa
Trauma Response Africa is a volunteer based emergency service providing first turnout emergency medical assistance as well as specialized aviation incident management in Bloemfontein and surrounding areas.
A motor cyclist in his 40's was killed late yesterday evening at the corners of Curie Avenue and Castelyn Drive after his motorcycle collided with a light delivery vehicle at the intersection.
Paramedics arrived at the scene and found the lifeless body of the man in the middle of the roadway with severe injuries.
After assessing him it was found that he had already succumbed to his injuries and sadly there was nothing more that could be done for him. He was declared dead on the scene.
The SAPS have opened a case of culpable homicide and will be investigating the cause of the accident.
Traffic on Curie Avenue heading out of Bloemfontein was disrupted for several hours as the road was closed for investigation and clean-up.
Thank you to Tiaan Boshoff of Bloemfontein EMS Chaplaincy and Trauma Support who came to offer councelling to family of the deceased who arrived at the scene.
