Cyclist serious after being hit by a car

A cyclist was seriously injured after he was hit by a car in Beethoven Road in Hartbeespoort on Tuesday afternoon.

According to Leandre Spies of Hartbeespoort Emergency and Medical Service (HEMS), the cyclist sustained multiple fractures and HEMS transported him to a hospital.

The high accident rate and speeding on Beethoven Road have been a bone of contention for the past years. During a recent meeting with the national roads department and Madibeng municipality’s traffic department, promises were made for strict law enforcement and speed restriction signs.
