OTJIWARONGO, 15 MAR (NAMPA) - Four people survived a road accident Friday morning after a sedan they were travelling in overturned three times before coming to half on the B1 road between Otjiwarongo and Okahandja.
Spokesperson of the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) in the Otjozondjupa Region, Inspector Maureen Mbeha told Nampa in an interview that the occupants, all men, were travelling from the direction of Okahandja to Otjiwarongo at the time of accident, which occurred at about 06h30 approximately 45 kilometres south of Otjiwarongo.
It is alleged a 26-year-old driver, who escaped unhurt, swerved to avoid hitting a Kudu on the road, leading to the vehicle overturning.
A 32-year-old passenger, and another occupant who is unable to speak and whose age is unknown, sustained back and head injuries.
The fourth occupant, aged 24, sustained only slight injuries.
“They were all taken to the Otjiwarongo State Hospital shortly after the accident,” Mbeha said.
