One dead after bakkie tries to avoid pedestrian on N2


One person has died, after the driver of a bakkie lost control while trying to avoid a pedestrian on the N2, just ten kilometres outside Jeffreys Bay on Sunday.

The bakkie, which was towing a trailer, was heading towards Port Elizabeth at the time of the accident.

“One person sustained fatal injuries, another two patients sustained serious injuries and two others sustained moderate injuries,” said Netcare spokesperson Shawn Herbst.

“All the patients were transported to hospital by private and government ambulance services,” added Herbst.
