12 April 2021 | Accidents
Three men died instantly on Saturday after the sedan they were travelling in overturned and crashed into a concrete wall along John Tjikuua Street at Okakarara.
Namibian police spokesperson in the Otjozondjupa Region, Inspector Maureen Mbeha, on Sunday said the three were identified as Ririkeho Kahiriri (23), Kennedy Kutako (24) and the 39-year-old Puvitanda Kaangundue, who was driving the vehicle.
Mbeha said the three men were residents of Okakarara and that their close relatives have been informed of their deaths.
The sedan was coming from an eastern direction and headed to the central business district when the driver allegedly lost control, causing the vehicle to roll and hit into the concrete wall of the Okakarara Vocational Training Centre at about 16h00 on Saturday.
“It is suspected speeding might have played a role due to the severe impact of the accident,” Mbeha said.
Police investigations continue.
