At approximately 16h40 on Tuesday afternoon 22 August 2017, Netcare 911 responded to reports of a very serious collision on the N14 Hugo road between Krugersdorp and Magaliesburg. Paramedics from Netcare 911 and other ambulance services as well as police attended the collision which involved a bakkie and a car. The incident and preceding events will form part of a police investigation. The female driver of the car was fortunate to escape with relatively minor injuries. However the 52 year old male driver of the bakkie had sustained very serious injuries and was attended to by Advanced Life Support paramedics. Due to his significant injuries and the location of the required specialist, the Netcare 911 helicopter ambulance was called to the scene. The helicopter landed off the road at a well-known resort approximately 1km from the scene of the collision. The man was stabilised at the scene and analgesic medication was administered to manage his pain. Specialised equipment was utilised to spinally restrict him to prevent unnecessary movement. He was then airlifted to hospital for the urgent medical care that he required.
