A 28-year-old critically injured man has been airlifted from the R82 in Vaalpark, Gauteng this afternoon.

ER24 paramedics attended to the man who was ejected from the vehicle and lay a few meters from the carnage. He sustained severe head trauma and as soon as he was stabilised he was airlifted by an ER24 helicopter to a nearby hospital for urgent medial care.

The collision apparently occurred when the patient crashed into the back of a petroleum tanker causing his vehicle to overturn ejecting him in the process.

The incident is under investigations by local authorities.
