Three women, aged 61, 74 and 84, died after their car left the road and overturned near Gibeon on Monday.

The Hardap police crime investigations coordinator, Deputy Commissioner Eric Clay, said yesterday the accident occurred around 12:20 on the B1 road, approximately 35 kilometres north of Gibeon.

“It is alleged that the driver of a white Honda Ballade with five occupants, which was traveling in the direction of Mariental, lost control of the vehicle and it left the road and overturned, killing two of the four passengers on the spot,” he said.

The three other occupants were rushed to the Mariental State Hospital, but one succumbed of her injuries upon arrival.

Clay said the 29-year-old driver and a 30-year-old woman were admitted to the hospital, with the driver being in a serious condition.

The next of kin of the deceased are yet to be notified and the police are investigating cases of culpable homicide.
