A 30-year-old man was shot in the head following a car crash on South Africa Drive in Cosmo City, ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said on Thursday.
He said shortly after 8pm on Wednesday, paramedics found the injured man slumped on a pavement near his vehicle.
“He had a gunshot wound to the front of his head,” said Vermaak. “The man told paramedics that he was involved in a collision with another vehicle when the other driver apparently got out of the vehicle and shot him.”
Vermaak said it appears the bullet entered the front of his skull. Paramedics treated him on the scene before taking him to hospital.
“He was in a serious but stable condition.”
Johannesburg Metro Police were on the scene. They were seen questioning the driver of the other vehicle involved in the crash. It was not clear if any arrest was made.
