    Default Biker and Pillion down between Kuruman and Kathu: 1 April 2013

    Two injured after motorbike collides with kudu in the Northern Cape

    *April 1st, 2013**admin

    A man has been left with critical injuries and a woman with moderate injuries after they allegedly collided with a kudu while travelling on their motorbike.

    We believe that the collision took place some time last night, but due to poor signal in the area, help was unable to be called immediately.

    The two were travelling on a dirt road (T3441) which is off the N14 between Kuruman and Kathu, where the collision with the animal happened about 40 kilometers from the main road. Paramedics were called this morning when it is believed that the woman who was on the motorbike managed to walk several hundred meters from the original scene of the crash to obtain signal on her mobile phone. They arrived to find the woman had suffered moderate injuries but was in a state of shock and hyperthermia, he was taken to a local hospital by the Provincial ambulance service.

    The man who had been on the bike was found lying close to where the crash had happened. He was in an extremely critical condition and was unresponsive. The paramedics quickly initiated treatment and loaded the injured man into the ambulance after which they rushed through to Mediclinic Kathu.

    The details surrounding this collision are still being investigated.

    Strongs to the rider and pillion. Hope they they make quick and full recovery.

    The Northern Cape is a bad area for driving around at night...even on 4 wheels. I have had a few close calls myself when travellig through there during the night.


    Don't take life too seriously....nobody gets out alive!!!

    Coming from the Eastern Cape where you find plenty of kudu I try not to travel at night, the kudu always wins.
