THE four occupants of a bakkie, the driver, a female passenger and her two young children, were lucky to escape with their lives when the vehicle collided with a TLB. The accident, on Friday morning on the corner of Harding and Durban streets, was reported to have been as a result of the bakkie driver attempting to overtake the TLB, which was turning right. According to various reports the TLB was signalling the right turn. When the bakkie hit the back of the TLB it spun round before coming to a stop. The driver, who is said to be unlicenced, as was the TLB, jumped out and ran away as police, traffic officials, security firms and onlookers arrived at the scene. The driver and his passengers were transported to Greytown Hospital for treatment - their injuries were serious, but not life-threatening. According to reports from a number of onlookers at the accident, the driver was also said to be unlicenced and both vehicles were not in good condition.
