Quad-biker killed in crash

Pretoria - A man was killed and another seriously injured when their quad-bikes crashed in Klerksdorp in the North West, paramedics said on Sunday.

The two men had been riding in opposite directions on a dirt track when they collided head-on, said Netcare911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks.

"The force of impact saw both men thrown from their bikes," said Wicks.

Paramedics arrived at the scene to find one critically injured man lying on the track near his overturned bike. He was taken to hospital where he died.

Wicks said the other rider, who was found lying in a ditch, was in a serious condition in hospital.
