Eastern Cape pedestrian crash leaves man critical

A man in his forties is fighting for his life after a pedestrian accident along Cuyler Manor Road near Despatch in the Eastern Cape this afternoon. Exact detail to the cause of the accident is still speculative and will remain a subject for police investigation and comment.

Netcare 911 paramedics arrived at the scene and found the man lying on the ground with life threatening injuries. Paramedics worked fervently to stabilise the man on scene and after they placed him on a ventilator and skilfully immobilised him on a trauma board, they airlifted the man to a specialised facility for the care that he required.
