Bakkie crash: Police appeal for witnesses

2008-11-05 00:00

POLICE are asking for assistance in their investigation of the vehicle accident which claimed the lives of four young people, including two grade 12 pupils, on the N3 northbound in Pietermaritzburg in the early hours of October 26.

Police spokesman Senior Superintendent Henry Budhram said investigators need witnesses who were not involved in the accident.

“So far we have only interviewed people who were in the vehicle. We need more independent people to assist us with the investigation,” said Budhram.

Among those killed in the crash of the vehicle, a bakkie, were Samukele Khumalo (17), Nomonde Hadebe (18), Thobisile Ngcobo (25) and Silindile Manyathi (25).

Witnesses to the accident can contact Inspector Vis Naiker at 033 845 7720 or 082 803 7799.
