Motorcyclist knocked off his bike

Netcare 911 on the scene of an accident in which a motorcyclist was knocked off his motorcycle this morning.

A motorcyclist was found nearly 10 metres from his wrecked motorcycle following an accident on Viljoen Street earlier this morning (12 August).

A motorist said she saw a cloud of dust when she pulled over on the side of the road where the 29-year-old man was lying. She stopped her vehicle on the side of the road in order to protect the injured man from oncoming traffic.

A passer-by said the driver of a grey Opel attempted to turn into Viljoen Street when she collided with the motorcyclist who was traveling towards Krugersdorp West.
