No survivors in horror crash

11 March 2019 | Crime

A head-on collision early this morning 35 kilometres from Windhoek to Okahandja killed all six occupants of the two cars involved in the crash. Witnesses say it is believed the driver of a Toyota sedan vehicle carrying four passengers swerved into an oncoming Mitsubishi to avoid a Kudu which had suddenly appeared on the road. Witnesses told Namibian Sun it appears that one of the five occupants was catapulted from the Toyota sedan vehicle and died. The remaining four occupants of the vehicle “burnt beyond recognition”, one of the witnesses said, after the sedan car caught fire. The driver of the Pajero died on impact, leaving no survivors of the accident. Emergency rescue teams are currently on site currently cleaning up the debris of the early Monday morning horror crash. The Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) Fund confirmed the accident, noting that the crash was reported at 06:19 this morning to the call centre.
