Four injured in N2 crash

A BMW collided with a stationary bakkie on the N2 just outside Macassar on Tuesday afternoon, resulting in at least four people being injured, one of whom was airlifted to hospital in a critical condition.

ER24 spokesperson Ross Campbell said the critically injured man, said to be in his 30s, was the driver of the BMW.

“Three people, also believed to be in their 30s and standing around the bakkie at the time, were also injured, two of them seriously,” he said.

ER24 paramedics, along with many other services, including the fire and traffic departments, were on the scene at 15:30.

“The BMW was found in the road and the driver had managed to extricate himself, even though he had suffered critical injuries,” Campbell said.

“He was treated using advanced life support intervention, before traffic officials closed the highway for another private service’s medical helicopter to land to transport him to Tygerberg Hospital for further care.”

The three people who were outside their bakkie were found lying at the scene.

One of the men, who was apparently filling the radiator with water, suffered serious injuries, as did a woman.

Both were treated with advanced life support interventions at the scene, while the third person, a man, suffered moderate injuries.

All three were transported to Helderberg Hospital for further care.

Local police were also on the scene for further investigations. The road was reopened by 17:00.
