Mkhondo Accidents – According to the SAPS there were numerous accidents over the weekend, probably because of more traffic due to the beginning of the school holidays.

Mkhondo Accidents Seeing that two of the above accidents occurred at night, motorists are urged to refrain from driving or travelling at all, at night. Save for emergencies, one should really limit driving in the dark, when visibility is not good.

Emergency personnel were, however, called out to three only, two of which once again occurred on the Ermelo road (N2). A tractor, turning into the road at the Ajax turn-off, collided with a truck coming from the direction of Ermelo on Friday, 2 October, at around 13:30. Apparently the driver of the tractor stopped, but started to drive again on the side of the road to let the truck pass before going onto the road itself.

It seems as if, either the truck was nearer the side of the road than anticipated, or the tractor driver might have started moving again a little too early and it collided with the truck, hitting its wheels more or less in the middle of the truck. One person sustained minor injuries during the incident.

An infant tragically lost his life on Sunday, 4 October, in an accident which occurred just after 22:00 on the Ermelo road (N2). One person was seriously injured as well and it is understood that she unfortunately also passed away in hospital on Tuesday morning, the 6th of October. One person sustained minor injuries when the driver of the car apparently lost control of the vehicle for an unknown reason as yet, and the vehicle overturned.

The accident occurred on the stretch of road between Iswepe and Panbult. An accident occurred on the Paulpietersburg road on Saturday, 3 October, just before midnight. The driver of the vehicle apparently said that he could not remember what had happened, only that they had been on their way to Piet Retief. The cause of the accident is therefore still unknown at this stage, but the vehicle presumably left the road and overturned. One person sustained serious injuries and two sustained minor injuries in this accident.
