ER24 Paramedics attended this accident scene.
ER24 is an Emergency Medical Service providing efficient, effective emergency response and pre-hospital care.
One man in his 20s was left critically injured early this morning after two light motor vehicles collided at the Annon and Gold Street intersection in Carletonville.
ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene at 03h30 and found both wrecked light motor vehicles in the middle of the road. On further investigation, paramedics discovered one man lying motionless and trapped inside the light motor vehicle.
Rescue services had to use the jaws-of-life equipment to the patients from the vehicle. Once freed, paramedics treated the patient and provided him with advanced life support interventions.
He was thereafter airlifted by a private medical helicopter to Baragwanath Provincial Hospital for urgent treatment.
The driver of the second vehicle fortunately did not sustain any injuries. Local authorities were on scene for further investigations.
