A truck and car had collided on the Olifantskop Pass, on the N10 road from Patterson to Cookhouse.

I got the call at 15:42 and was airborne 15:48. I arrived on scene at 16:15 and landed about 500 meters from the accident scene on a suitable section of the mountain pass road.

The paramedics were transported with the South African police to the accident site.

We were airborne again at 17:06, airlifting one of the trapped victims to Greenacres/Netcare Private Hospital. Flight time for the transfer was 20 minutes.
