[AMANZIMTOTI, KZN – 10 DECEMBER 2012]

Incident Time : 14h20
A collision between a Corsa Lite and a Hyundai on the R603 near to Amanzimtoti has left both drivers with serious injuries this afternoon.

ER24 paramedics along with Amanzimtoti Fire Department arrived on the scene and found the two light motor vehicles in the road but on either side of the R603 into the Armco barriers. Paramedics assessed the two drivers and found that the driver of the Corsa needed to be extricated from the vehicle due to his injuries and the Jaws of Life was used to extricate him while the paramedics treated him for his injuries. The patient had sustained facial and suspected neck and back injuries.

The driver of the Hyundai was treated for suspected neck and back injuries and suspected chest injuries with minor cuts to her knees. Both patients were stabilised on scene and transported to a nearby hospital for further medical care.

It is unclear what caused the drivers to have the accident but the necessary authorities were on the scene and would investigate the accident further. The road had to be closed while emergency personnel treated the patients.
