Four Johannesburg hair salon clients injured as truck crashes into salon
Four clients in a hair salon in Johannesburg were injured when a truck mounted the pavement and crashed into the salon, while a number of other people were also injured in vehicle accidents in the city this weekend, paramedics said on Sunday.
Netcare 911 paramedics responded shortly after 9.20am on Saturday morning to reports of a road accident in Bertha Street in Rosenttenville in the south of Johannesburg, Netcare 911 spokesman Shawn Herbst said in a statement.
According to reports from the scene of the accident, the driver of a truck apparently lost control of the vehicle which then crashed over the pavement and into a packed hair salon, he said.
Medics found that four people in the hair salon had sustained moderate injuries and were treated on the scene before being transported by ambulance to hospital for further treatment, Herbst said
