Gauteng: At 17H19 Saturday late afternoon Netcare 911 responded to reports of a collision on the R54 Villiers Road in Vereeniging.
Reports from the scene indicate that a light motor vehicle and a passenger transport H1 bus were involved in a head-on collision.
Medics assessed the scene and found that two adult females from the car and an adult male had sustained serious injuries and required Advanced Life Support intervention to stabilise them.
Two children passengers, a 3-year-old and one believed to be a 6-year-old sustained moderate injury and were also treated on the scene. Three occupants from the bus had sustained moderate injuries.
Due to the nature of two of the patients’ injuries, the Netcare 1 and Netcare 2 both specialised helicopter ambulances were activated to airlift the most seriously injured patients to the hospital.
The Fire and Rescue Services had to use the hydraulic tools to free one of the adult females from the badly damaged vehicles.
Once treated and stabilised, all the patients were transported by various ambulance services to hospital for further treatment.
Three occupants from the H1 passenger bus were also treated on scene and transported by ambulance to the hospital. All necessary authorities were on the scene.
