Cape Town - A motorist was killed when a truck went over his car near Meiringspoort, Western Cape traffic authorities said on Tuesday.

“It looks like a side-swipe accident. The truck went over the car and the driver was trapped. He was the only person in the vehicle,” spokesperson Kenny Africa said.

The accident happened around 23:00 on Monday on the N12 between Meiringspoort and Beaufort West.
