Trio hurt as car rolls and crashes into tree
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.”
