25 Jul 2010
Two people were killed and four other passengers were injured, one seriously after the vehicle in which they were travelling overturned around noon on the N18 Vryburg-Taung road on Sunday.
A tyre burst is alleged to have caused the driver of the Toyota Stallion which was from Stella to Setlagole to lose control of the vehicle about 18 kilometers from Setlagole. A 75 year old man and 42 years old woman died at the scene of the accident.
The driver and the injured passengers were rushed by paramedics to Stella Provincial Hospital. North West MEC for Public Safety, Howard Yawa wished the injured passengers a speedy recovery. MEC Yawa who is still shocked by the horrific accident that claimed 10 lives on the N4 in Rustenburg on Friday has conveyed his condolences to the families of those who lost their loved ones in road accidents over the weekend in the province.
The MEC appeals to motorists to do pre-trip inspections on their vehicles before taking to the roads.
