ER24 paramedics were called out to an accident on the N1, involving a vehicle and a scooter.
Paramedics found the scooter rider, a male believed to be in his 30s, lying on the side of the road.
The scooter had collided with a Toyota Rav 4, and the victim sustained head injuries and probable internal organ damage.
Tristan Wadeley, spokesperson for ER24 in the Western Cape, said after the patient was carried to the ambulance, his condition began to deteriorate.
Paramedics tried to resuscitate him but he was declared dead after the ambulance transported him to Groote Schuur Hospital.
