A man, who crashed his Mercedes-Benz on Sunday morning along the R21 near the Pomona off-ramp and had to be freed using the Jaws of Life, was declared dead on the scene.
Emer-G-Med said when paramedics arrived on the scene at about 10 am they ascertained that the Mercedes-Benz left the road at high speed and smashed into a steel structure.
“On closer inspection paramedics found a male driver believed to be approximately forty years of age, severely entrapped in the wreckage,” said Emer-G-Med.
“The man was found to have sustained fatal injuries and there was nothing paramedics could do to assist him, he was declared dead on the scene.”
Police are investigating the cause of the crash.
