A truck driver, believed to be 39 years old, sustained moderate injuries in a collision with another truck on the N3 in Balgowan in KwaZulu-Natal early this morning.
At approximately 05h10, ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene and found the driver entrapped in the truck. Fire and Rescue personnel had to use the Jaws of Life to extricate the man from the truck.
He was treated and transported to a nearby hospital for further medical care.
The driver of a stationary truck was not at the scene during the time ER24 paramedics were there.
The exact circumstances surrounding the incident were not yet known to our paramedics, but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
