Three people were injured Saturday morning following a two vehicle collision on the R21 neat the Pomona exit in Kempton Park. ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene and found that two vehicles had been involved in this incident.
One light motor vehicle was found in the fast lane of the highway while the second was found on the opposite side, lying on the embankment.
When paramedics inspected the vehicle on the embankment, they found three occupants in the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle was found lying trapped.
Rescue services had to use the jaws-of-life equipment to free the man before treatment could continue.
Once freed, paramedics treated all three patients for their injuries and thereafter transported them to various hospitals for further treatment.
The cause of the collision is not yet known but local authorities were on scene for further investigations.
