Trucking company, Jabula Plant Hire, on Monday distanced itself from an accident that left three people injured when a truck collided with vehicles participating in the #BlackMonday march.

News24 reported that two people were seriously injured and one sustained moderate injuries outside Middelburg, Mpumalanga, when a truck failed to stop and ploughed into cars participating in the protest against farm murders.

Pictures posted on social media had placed the blame on Jabula Plant Hire. 

“While we are greatly saddened by the accident that took place this morning we would like to clarify that the cause of the accident was not due to the negligence of our driver or caused by the truck he was driving,” said spokesperson Jaco Pretorius.

The company released a video of the incident. 

He said that although the truck was pictured in the photographs taken, it was not the truck that ploughed into the vehicles, adding that the incident was not caused by any wrongdoing of Jabula Plant Hire’s driver.
