According to a report of ER24 officials, a young man died in a car accident on Wednesday morning. The driver allegedly lost control of his vehicle crashing into a bridge pillar on the N14 by the Weirda Road off-ramp in Centurion.
ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene at about 4:18 a.m. where another rescue service team were already assessing the victim. Unfortunately, the driver sustained severe injuries that caused his death.
“CPR and advanced life support interventions were immediately initiated, in an effort to revive the patient. Unfortunately, after some time, no vital signs returned and the man was declared dead on the scene,” the ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring concluded.
As it can be seen on the pictures that were twitted by the First Help, the vehicle was found completely destroyed near the bridge.
Local authorities refrained from making any statements while the accident investigation was going.
