A motorbike rider, believed to be in his fifties, is in a critical condition after he was involved in a collision on the M13 Richmond Road in Pinetown, Durban.
Shortly after 5pm paramedics from ER24 arrived on the scene where they found the man lying in the middle of the road. Traffic services were already in attendance and closed off the road while an off duty doctor assisted the man. Paramedics found the man with critical injuries ranging from multiple fractures to possible internal injuries.
According to bystanders on the scene a vehicle apparently drove over him shortly after he crashed. However, this could not be confirmed on the scene.
Paramedics stabilised him on scene and rushed him to St Augustine hospital for further care. The exact cause of the incident is not yet known.
