A motorcyclist was struck by lightning while travelling between Kroonstad and Welkom on Wednesday, paramedics said.

The 34-year-old was found standing next to the road in the morning by a crew of paramedics passing by, who noticed something was wrong, ER24 spokesman Christo Venter said.

“He suffered some burn wounds and other injuries and was taken to Medi-Clinic Welkom for further treatment,” Venter said.
