2011-10-01 09:39

Durban - A matric pupil was killed on Friday night and three others injured when their car overturned near Umlazi, south of Durban, paramedics said.

Their car was hit on the side by another vehicle on Mkhazini Road in the Fulweni area, Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said.

"The pupils were apparently travelling to a matric farewell event, but their destination was not known."

The 18-year-old male pupil died on the scene. Another was critically injured, while two others escaped with minor injuries.

They were taken to Mshiyeni Hospital.

The cause of the accident was not immediately clear, Botha said.

      if the driver was sober and stayed on his side of the road the other car would not have hit the side, the investigation will reveal the truth, i say ban alcohol completely and this wont happen, I bet you this is alcohol related, these windgat punk kids think they know everything

      Ian is stupid. The fact that he is an alcoholic,he thinks everyone is alcoholic. How does he know the driver was drunk and not on his side of the road.Ian you are the one who is drunk and your mind is on the wrong side of your thinking.

      Hey Ian slow down with the shouting looks like you need a drink Im paying

      @Ian: Firstly you have made unfounded assumptions and passed judgement on people without having all the facts. Not a very wise thing to do. Secondly, in one of your posts you have called for the banning of alcohol to stop the carnage on the road. I agree that alcohol is to blame for a great deal of accidents, but banning it is not the answer. Narcotic drugs are banned in this country, they are still widely used. Murder is a crime in this country; judging from our crime stats it still is a popular pasttime. No sir, banning is not the answer. Proper education and policing is.

      "there" and "their", know the difference.... now go back to school you illiterate fool.

      jowza - 2011-10-01 10:31

      and how do you know that

      Bigears - 2011-10-01 10:37

      @jowza, Bosepa knows it because he is an uneducated moron with no feelings for others.

  • Bigears - 2011-10-01 10:24

    I do not see any reference to alcohol, are you lot clairvoyant? Thoughts are with the families who have suffered this loss and may the others get well soon.

  • twolips - 2011-10-01 10:43

    It sounds more like a car hit them side-on, possibly at an intersection or from an overtaking maneuver gone wrong. Still sad.

  • steve - 2011-10-01 11:48
