Florida – Last Thursday four people were killed and another injured when the truck they were travelling in rolled on Albertina Sisulu Road in Florida.
ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said paramedics arrived on the scene at 23:15 to find the truck upright in a ditch on the side of the road.
“A man and a woman were found lying inside the cab of the truck, while two women and a man were found lying next to the truck. Medics assessed the patients and found that the man and woman inside the truck had already succumbed to their injuries. Nothing could be done for them and they were declared dead. The three patients outside the vehicle were also assessed. Another man and woman were in a critical condition, while the second woman sustained moderate injuries.”
Meiring said paramedics treated the patients and provided the two critically injured with advanced life support interventions. “Unfortunately, after some time, the two critically injured succumbed to their injuries.”
The patients with moderate injuries were later transported to a private hospital for further treatment. Details surrounding this incident are not yet known, but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations, Meiring said.
