Netcare 911 paramedics and other services responded to an accident on the Solomon Mahlangu Drive M10 (Hans Strijdom Drive) in Moreleta Park, Pretoria this afternoon.
Upon their arrival on scene they found that a heavy goods vehicle had left the road way and crashed through a wall.
The forty-one-year-old driver was entrapped in the vehicle and the Jaws of Life had to be used to extricate the critically injured man from the vehicle. One removed from the vehicle, the man was treated on scene before he was transported to a nearby hospital for further medical care.
The exact detail to the cause of the accident and preceding events will remain the subject of a police investigation.
