The man was admitted to the Swakopmund hospital and has since been transferred to Windhoek, as his condition is critical.  The man was seen earlier on Wednesday evening at a restaurant at Mile 14. He was walking from the direction of the main road seemed inebriated. He asked patrons for a cigarette. Someone then took the man back to the main road, as he wanted to hitch hike.

A while later, patrons spotted an ambulance approaching from Swakopmund. They went to the main road and found the man lying on the road surface in a severe injured state. He was still conscious and said his name was “Jan” and “fell from a vehicle”. He lost consciousness shortly thereafter.
