LEPHALALE — A 36 year old man, Khonoung Alpheus Motsheko, was killed instantly after he was probably hit by a truck.
Motsheko’s tattered body was found on the R510 by an unknown man, after which the Lephalale Police were called out.
WO Frans Mokoena, Lephalale SAPS spokesperson, says the police went out after the incident was reported and it seemed like his body and head were “crushed” by the truck. The driver of the truck allegedly didn’t stop after he hit Motsheko, but drove away.
WO Mokoena says the man was unrecognisable but the police found a smart card in his backpack. His family was contacted and they spoke to the police later on Sunday.
The investigation continues.
