Last night EMER-G-MED’s RV5 and A10 attended to a serious collision on the R550 at the R82, in Grasmere Johannesburg South.

Paramedics arrived on-scene to find that two vehicles had collided head-on, allegedly after one car swerved – for unknown reasons – into oncoming traffic. Both vehicles were heavily damaged.

One patient sustained severe polytrauma and was in a critical condition. Paramedics stabilised the patient, performing multiple Advanced Life Support interventions before rushing the patient to nearby trauma hospital for further care.

A second patient sustained minor to moderate injuries and was treated on-scene before also being transported to a nearby hospital.

Local authorities were on the scene to investigate the exact events leading up to the collision.
