Three people were left injured yesterday morning when a car crashed into a light pole on Raapenberg Road in Pinelands.

ER24 paramedics, along with Community Medics and Ronin, arrived on the scene at 1:45am to find the vehicle smashed against the pole. 

One man was found lying trapped inside the vehicle while two others were found walking around on the scene.

Paramedics assessed the patients and found the man trapped inside the vehicle was in a critical condition while the two other men had sustained minor injuries.

Rescue services had to use specialised equipment to free the entrapped man.

Once freed, paramedics treated the patients and provided the critically injured man with advanced life support interventions.

The trio were transported to nearby hospitals.

The cause of the crash is being investigated.
