A cyclist was hit by a car and killed on the R623 outside Pietermaritzburg on Saturday morning, paramedics said.

 

The man, a "well-known individual within the medical fraternity" in Pietermaritzburg, was riding his bicycle when he was hit by a Mazda Drifter bakkie, said ER24 spokesperson Andre Visser said.

 

"The force of impact saw the rider thrown from his bicycle," Netcare911 spokesperson Jeff Wicks said.

 

Visser said the accident was witnessed by a group of cyclists, who initiated resuscitation efforts.

He was declared dead on the scene.

 

The occupants of the bakkie were "visibly shaken" but uninjured, Wicks said.

 

The man's identity could not be confirmed until his next of kin had been informed.

Apparently he was a cardiologist. Condolences. I can only imagine the grief felt by his family, but also by those people whose lives he saved.
