Johannesburg - A man was airlifted to hospital in a serious condition after the car he was driving veered out of control on the N3 in Johannesburg and rolled several times before smashing into a barrier on Friday night, paramedics said.
Netcare 911 responded to reports of a serious collision on the N3 near Marlboro Drive at 8.25pm, Netcare 911 spokesman Shawn Herbst said on Saturday.
Reports from the scene indicated that the driver of a car lost control, resulting in the vehicle rolling several times before slamming into the Armco barrier.
"The patient, a 25-year-old male, sustained serious injuries and required advanced life support intervention. Due to the severity of his injuries the Netcare 1 specialised helicopter air ambulance was called in to airlift the man to hospital where he will be treated," Herbst said.
