Several ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene to find a large truck lying on its side on the side of the road. A small fire had broken out in the cab of the truck.
Two ER24 paramedics began to contain the fire, using extinguishers, while another ER24 paramedic made his way to the patient further up the road.
Upon closer inspection, paramedics found another service treating the patient. Assessments showed that the man had sustained numerous injuries, leaving him in a serious condition.
Paramedics treated the man and provided him with pain-relief medication before he was transported him to Edendale Provincial Hospital for further care.
It is believed that the man had jumped from his truck, causing it to overturn in the centre medium.
Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
