A 32-year-old man was left seriously injured after he was hit by an unknown vehicle on the N12 outside of Potchefstroom.
ER24 paramedics were called to the scene this morning after a passing motorist had noticed the man lying in the grass.
When ER24 paramedics arrived on scene, they were ushered to the patient who was found to be in a serious condition.
Assessments showed that the man had sustained injuries to his legs and his waist.
It is understood that the man was hit by a car late last night. The occupants of the vehicle apparently dragged the man into the grass and proceeded to drive off.
Paramedics treated the man and thereafter transported him to Potchefstroom Hospital for further treatment.
Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
