[DIEPSLOOT] One killed, one injured in collision

23 Feb 2020, 10:19 am

One person was killed and another sustained serious injuries when they were involved in a collision along the N14 near the R511 Diepsloot offramp on Saturday evening.

Shortly after 5pm, paramedics from ER24 and other services arrived on the scene where they found the passenger with fatal injuries still inside of the vehicle. The driver, a man believed to be 28 years old, was found outside of the vehicle. He had sustained severe abdominal injuries, along with various other injuries.

It is understood from the man that he apparently lost control over the vehicle on the wet road and it collided with the Armco barrier on the side of the road which then penetrated the vehicle. A second vehicle with three occupants was also involved in the collision. The three occupants did not sustain any injuries.

There was sadly nothing that paramedics could do for the fatally injured passenger in the vehicle. He was declared dead on the scene.

The young man was rushed to a nearby hospital for further medical management. The exact circumstances surrounding the collision will be investigated by the local authorities that attended the scene.
