Head-on collision leaves five injured on the R82 near the R557 in Johannesburg.

Five people were left injured late last night following a head-on collision between two light motor vehicles on the R82 near the R557 in Johannesburg.

ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene to find both the light motor vehicles in the middle of the road. Both had sustained a large amount of damage in the collision. Four patients were found lying outside one of the light motor vehicles while one was seated inside the second vehicle.

Paramedics assessed the patients and found that all five had sustained moderate to critical injuries.

The patients were treated for their injuries and provided with advanced life support interventions. Once treated, the patients were transported to Baragwanath Provincial Hospital for further care.

Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
