She was dragged underneath a vehicle when the motorist sped off

A woman from Gauteng is in critical condition after she was dragged underneath a vehicle at the William Nicol and Sandton Drive intersection in Johannesburg on Thursday morning (20th November 2014).

When the paramedics arrived on scene, they found the woman lying in the middle of the road. She had sustained multiple injuries to her head and chest after being dragged beneath the vehicle for some distance.

“It’s understood that the incident occurred when the woman had stopped her vehicle to exchange her details with another driver after a minor collision. The driver apparently sped off, dragging the woman under the vehicle,” said ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring.

The man who dragged her underneath his vehicle has yet to be identified.
