Johannesburg - Three children were killed and another was critically injured on Friday when a bakkie crashed into them on the R102 near Mdeni in KwaZulu-Natal, an official said.

Transport spokesperson Kwanele Ncalane said the four children were on their way to school.

"The driver of a bakkie lost control of his vehicle and crashed into the children at about 07:00."

Three children - two girls and a boy - were declared dead on the scene.

The fourth child, a boy, was rushed to a nearby hospital with serious injuries.

"The boy is fighting for his life and is in a very critical condition," Ncalane said.

The four children were apparently related.

The driver of the bakkie faces three charges of culpable homicide, he said.

      Where was GOD when he was most needed for their protection? Makes you wonder who he is protecting these days.

      May you little angel RIP. Condolences to the family and friends. The negligent driver should be jailed forever for murder X 3 and should pay hospital bills for the boys treatment.

    No one intentionally knocks down innocent kids, that why we call these accidents! Ppl judge too quickly, yet intentional, murders get off lightly! To the family that lost their kids,my deepest sympathies to you'll,n to the family of the driver, it must also be a traumatic time for you'll, may god be with both the families!

    You all do not know what really happened, yes my heart goes out to those little children that died and the one that is fighting for his life. But most of all my heart goes out to the driver, accidents happen, it was a unfortunate accident, i really hope that the law stays on your side so that you can safely return to your family. Evevryone comments and says that the driver should get the full force of the law......Do you know what happened!??? or are you just making your judgement from what you have read above!?
