WINDHOEK, 08 SEP (NAMPA) – Four people were seriously injured in an accident during the peak hours of Monday morning along Moses Garoeb Street in Khomasdal, Windhoek.
Three motor vehicles - a silver Volvo S60 sedan, grey Ford Bantam pick-up, and a light blue Toyota Conquest hatchback - were involved in the crash.
Two males - the driver and a passenger - of the S60, and a female who was a passenger in the Conquest were rushed to hospital for medical attention.
Emergency rescue units had to apply the ‘jaws of life’ to free the driver of the Conquest, who sustained a fractured leg and was bleeding severely.
Eye-witnesses at the scene said the driver of the Volvo S60 was on a high speed chasing through the yellow traffic light on Moses Garoeb Street when it ramped head-on-head with the oncoming Toyota Conquest that was about to make a right turn into Visarend Street. The collision then forced the Conquest to hit the Ford Bantam.
The Namibian Police (Nampol) Khomas Regional Crime Coordinator, Deputy Commissioner Sylvanus Nghishidimbwa, could not provide more details of the accident at the time of the short interview with Nampa on Monday.
