A motorcyclist, believed to be in his late 20s, was killed and three other people were injured in a multi-vehicle crash on the corner of Republic Road and Bram Fischer Drive in Randburg, Johannesburg late on Friday night, paramedics said.

ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene at about 11pm and found a man and woman, both believed to be in their 30s, sitting on the side of the road, ER24 spokeswoman Annine Siddall said.

“The woman sustained moderate injuries and she was transported to Mediclinic Sandton by ER24. The biker was trapped under a vehicle and upon arrival was declared dead by other emergency services on [the] scene,” she said.

Another man, believed to be in his 50s, sustained minor injuries and was transported to a nearby hospital by other emergency services for further medical care. The cause of the accident was not yet known, Siddall said.
