Standerton Road accident claims one life, injures one

One person was killed in this vehicle accident this morning.

BETHAL – A high impact smash on the road to Standerton near Milan Park has left one man dead and another injured.  The incident took place at about 06:40am on Saturday, 10 March 2018 when the driver of a white Toyota Hilux company (John Thompson Plant and Environmental Solutions) bakkie smashed onto a Toyota Etios vehicle.

According to the spokeswoman of eMzinoni Police, Constable Cynthia Mtsweni, the bakkie was travelling at high speed behind the Etios while both vehicles were respectively heading towards the direction of Standerton from Bethal Town.

“When the driver of the Etios reached the stop sign at the four-way-stop that links Ninth Street and Milan Park he realised that the vehicle behind him seems like it will be unable to stop, he quickly took a turn to his right, the direction of Ninth Street.

“The bakkie really didn’t manage to stop.   Its driver lost control and hit the Etios on the driver’s side.

“That’s when the bakkie overturned and rolled a couple of times until it hit a Govan Mbeki municipal garbage-pick-up-truck that was parked on the other side of the road,” Constable Mtsweni told the Village Voice News.

The driver of the bakkie was declared dead at the scene of the accident.
