A man has died after losing control of his bakkie and colliding with two trees, one after the other, on the side of the M3 in Newlands, Cape Town, early on Sunday morning.
According to ER24, paramedics arrived on the scene at 1:20am along with the City Fire & Rescue, Metro EMS, Metro Rescue and the SAPS.
The man, whose age is unknown, was found trapped in his vehicle in a critical condition. Even though Advanced Life Support interventions were administered while he was still being extracted, his condition deteriorated.
“A resuscitation attempt was made once the patient was extracted, but unfortunately the man succumbed to his multiple injuries and was declared dead on the scene,” ER24 adds.
The South African Police Services were on the scene for investigation.
