side of the road. A light motor vehicle was found a short distance away against the barrier.
Paramedics assessed the patients and found that one man had sustained numerous injuries and showed no signs of life. Nothing could be done for him and he was declared dead.
Six other patients were assessed on the scene. Three were found to have sustained moderate injuries while three others had sustained minor injuries.
The patients were treated for their injuries and were thereafter transported to
nearby hospitals for further care.
The driver of the light motor vehicle was not found on the scene.
