CAPE TOWN – A man, believed to be in his 20s, was injured when he was knocked over by a runaway boat on a trailer while walking along Tygervalley Road in Richwood in Cape Town on Sunday.
“Paramedics arrived on the scene to find the man lying on the side of the road. A boat and trailer were found parked a short distance away,” said ER24 spokesman Russel Meiring.
Paramedics assessed the man and found that he had sustained an injury to his arm. He was treated for his injuries and transported to a hospital for further treatment.
“It is understood that the trailer had come loose from a vehicle, causing it to veer off the road and crash into the pedestrian. Authorities were on the scene to investigate further,” Meiring said.
