Entrapment, driver airlifted to hospital

A heavy goods vehicle and a light delivery vehicle collided on the R74 near Maphumulo this morning. Upon arrival of IPSS paramedics, they found the driver of the light delivery vehicle in a critical condition, severely entrapped in the wreckage.

While under the care of IPSS advanced life support paramedics, Kwadakuza fire & rescue services used the jaws of life to free the critically injured driver.

Due to the nature of his injuries, attending practitioners opted to utilize the IPSS/Black Eagle aeromedical helicopter to transport the patient to a specialised trauma facility.
