Driver injured as car crashes down a steep slope on Boyes Drive
At 6:54PM, Cape Medical Response was contacted by a local security company asking for assistance for a car that had left the roadway on Boyes Drive and had gone down a steep slope. CMR and Lakeside Fire & Rescue were responded.
Fire & Rescue and a CMR paramedic descended the slope to the car approximately 30-metres from the roadway where they found the driver of the vehicle, an adult male, who had been travelling alone in the vehicle.
The patient was treated for his injuries, loaded into a Stokes rescue basket, and was carried back up to the road and into a waiting ambulance to be transported to a local Cape Town hospital for further care.
Thank you to all services on scene: Fire & Rescue, Metro Rescue, Life Healthcare paramedics, Traffic Service and SAPS.
