Girl, 8, dies in Durban accident
Johannesburg - An 8-year-girl died on Tuesday when she was hit by a bakkie while crossing Spine Road in Westville, Durban, paramedics said.
She was on her own and it looked like she had been trying out her new school shoes ahead of the start of term on Wednesday, Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said.
"Reports from the scene indicate that the child was trying to cross the road outside the Sasol service station around 16:00 when she landed in front of a bakkie."
She died before paramedics arrived.
