A 22-year-old man died when he was hit by a car on Pomona Road in Kempton Park on Sunday afternoon, Gauteng paramedics said.
ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene and found the man lying on the side of the road. The car that hit the man was parked a few feet away, ER24 spokesman Russel Meiring said.
On assessment, paramedics found that the man had sustained numerous injuries and showed no signs of life. Paramedics immediately began cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and initiated advanced life support interventions.
“Unfortunately, after 25 minutes, no vital signs returned and the patient was pronounced dead on the scene. The driver of the vehicle fortunately escaped without injury,” Meiring said.
