A young mother and father, their 18-month-old child, as well as their driver, escaped with only minor injuries after a truck rear-ended their stationary vehicle on the N1 South, near Centurion this morning.
ER24 Paramedics, as well as other services, arrived on the scene just after 10am to find that a large truck had collided with a light motor vehicle, which had apparently pulled to the side of the freeway to change a tyre. Paramedics said that the mother and child, who were seated in the back of the vehicle, were very lucky not to have sustained more serious injuries, given the force of the impact. After assessing the patients on the scene, ER24 transported the mother and child to Pretoria West Hospital for further treatment. The truck driver was left unharmed.
Traffic services were on the scene for further investigation.
