The Star Early Edition - - NATION -

A 3-YEAR-OLD CHILD was among those in­jured in a col­li­sion when a ve­hi­cle rolled and crashed into a tree in Con­stan­tia on Satur­day night.

“Three peo­ple were left in­jured, in­clud­ing a girl be­lieved to be 3 years old, when their light mo­tor ve­hi­cle rolled and crashed into a tree on Rhodes Drive in Con­stan­tia, Western Cape,” ER24 spokesper­son Rus­sel Meir­ing said.

“ER24 paramedics, along with Metro and other ser­vices, ar­rived on the scene to find the ve­hi­cle on the side of the road against a tree. A woman, be­lieved to be in her twen­ties, was found ly­ing out­side the ve­hi­cle while a man, also in his twen­ties, along with a young girl were found trapped in­side the ve­hi­cle,” he said.

A man and a child had to be res­cued from the wreck­age.

“Metro Res­cue ser­vices had to use spe­cialised equip­ment to free the two trapped pa­tients from the ve­hi­cle. Once freed, paramedics treated the pa­tients and there­after took them to hos­pi­tal for fur­ther treat­ment,” Meir­ing said.

“Lo­cal au­thor­i­ties were on the scene for fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tions.”
