A 20-year-old man is in a serious condition in hospital after he had to be extricated from his car.
The man allegedly lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a roadside barrier in Potchefstroom in the North West on Friday night, paramedics said.
ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene along Thabo Mbeki Drive just before 10pm to find the man trapped in his car, ER24 spokesman Ross Campbell said on Saturday.
Fire and rescue personnel extricated him from the car and he was treated by advanced life support paramedics before being transported to Mediclinic Potchefstroom for further care, Campbell said.
