WATCH: Bakkie careens down Bo-Kaap hill, narrowly misses woman

02 November, 11:47 AM

A woman narrowly escaped injury as a bakkie came careening down a hill in the Bo-Kaap. Video footage of the incident surfaced online recently.

According to ER24, the incident happened on Tuesday, October 16 at the intersection of Morris and Longmarket streets.

Emergency personnel arrived on the scene to find the bakkie on its roof, an ER24 statement said.

Occupants in the back of the vehicle were injured when the bakkie flipped over.

Paramedics assessed them and found that two men had sustained serious to critical injuries while five others sustained minor to moderate injuries.

Someone close to the family of one of the occupants, who asked to remain anonymous, told News24 that the bakkie's brakes failed, which caused the driver to lose control.

She said the men made full recoveries: "They are all back at work. God really came through for them."
