It is understood a vehicle rear-ended the motorist's bakkie on the highway causing it to veer off the road and crash into concrete barriers.

Netcare911's Chris Botha says the man had to be airlifted to hospital.

''When we arrived there, the driver of the bakkie was in a very critical condition. Paramedics worked fervently at the scene to stabilise him. 

''He was then airlifted to St Augustines Hospital with the Red Cross helicopter,'' he said.

Authorities say the road has been closed to traffic. Motorists to use alternate routes to bypass the scene.
