LEPHALALE – One person died at around 14:30 on Saturday after the vehicle she was travelling in presumably left the new Vaalwater road near D’Nyala and rolled.
According to Warrant Officer Frans Mokoena, Lephalale Police spokesperson, it looked as if the vehicle, a white Chevrolet, literally spun through the air, hitting the ground once before shooting up into the air again and coming to rest on its roof. W.O. Mokoena says it appears that the driver was driving at a very high speed. He says the deceased’s body was torn in two when the police arrived at the scene.
The family of the deceased, M.L.M. Peteke, had already been to the Lephalale police to make further arrangements.
According to W.O. Mokoena a case of culpable homicide has been opened as per CAS 76/7/2016.
