Kudu causes 2 accidents

13 May 2008

Schweizer-Reneke - A collision with a kudu presumably caused two accidents that killed five people in the North West province.

The incident happened at about 07:00 on the Schweizer-Reneke-Wolmaransstad road.

"It looks (according to an eyewitness report) as if the driver of a Mazda Drifter bakkie ... was going in the direction of Wolmaransstad when he hit a kudu and lost control of the vehicle. The Mazda then collided with a Nissan Hard Body bakkie with three people inside who were heading to Schweizer-Reneke," said police spokesperson superintendent Louis Jacobs.

All five people in both cars died in the accident. The victims were from Vryburg.

The kudu also died.
