A 19-year old girl identified as Sarah Hock was hit by a car and died along the Western-bypass in the early morning hours on Thursday, police have confirmed. 

Deputy Police Commissioner, Edwin Kanguatjivi, confirmed with The Villager that the girl is said to have been involved in an argument with her parents the day before the accident after which she allegedly went to the western by-pass to commit suicide by standing in front of an on-coming car.

“The rest are allegations but I know that she was hit by a car and the allegation is that this morning by 07.35am, on the western by-pass opposite the Lutheran Congregation, she was allegedly standing on the shoulder of the road and as a car was passing she jumped in the road,” said the deputy commissioner. 

He also confirmed that, “The other allegation is that she had a quarrel the previous day with her mom. And this morning (Thursday) when she left she said that she was going to commit suicide. But these are all allegations so far.”
