Mom, child die as car rolls
Mahikeng - A woman and her 4-year-old son were killed when their car rolled near Mahikeng in the early hours of Monday morning, the North West public safety department said.
The driver of the Toyota Corolla, carrying his wife and three children, apparently tried to avoid stray animals on the R503 between Rooigrond and Danville shortly after midnight, spokesperson Lesiba Kgwele said.
He lost control of the car and it overturned, flinging the mother, aged 34, and her son out. They died on the scene.
The 37-year-old husband and two other children, aged 1 and 16, were taken to the Mahikeng Provincial Hospital with serious injuries.
