Teen driver in killer crash
Johannesburg - A man was killed and six others were injured when a bakkie driven by a 17-year-old youth crashed into another vehicle near Majakaneng outside Brits on Sunday, an official said.
The teenager overtook another car and veered to the right side when he saw another on-coming vehicle on the R104 around 06:00, North West public safety department spokesperson Lesiba Kgwele said. "He lost control of the bakkie... it crashed into another stationary car and overturned.
A passenger of the bakkie died on the scene and six others, including the driver, were taken to a nearby hospital in a serious condition.
Kgwele said the youth was driving without a driver's licence, but he has not yet been arrested.
A case of culpable homicide and reckless driving has been opened.
