A truck crashed into an office park at corner of William Nicol and Kingfisher drive in Fourways this morning.
A 30-year-old driver was severely trapped in the wrecked truck. He was freed from the wreck by City of Johannesburg fire-fighters with specialised equipment.
The driver is in a critical condition and was transported by a Netcare 911 helicopter from the scene.
He was then taken to a specialized Trauma Unit for urgent medical care that he required.
Meanwhile the road was closed to traffic, as the helicopter had to land at the scene of the accident which created massive traffic flow jam.
Around ten vehicles in the car park area of the office sustained damage ranging from severe to relatively minor. The cause of the accident is still under investigation by the police.
