PALAPYE: A 41-year-old Mahube Express Bus Services driver died in what can only be termed a freak accident at the Palapye Bus Rank yesterday, when the vehicle he was driving crushed his head, the police have reported.

The Zimbabwean man was driving the Gaborone-bound bus coming from Orapa when he met his fate.

According to the police report, the bus made a burst-like sound along the way before reaching Palapye. 

While some customers disembarked the bus at the rank, the driver decided to investigate what had caused the burst-like sound.  He went under the vehicle to inspect the fault only to find a tyre had burst.

The deceased’s body is at the hospital morgue awaiting postmortem, senior superintendent Paul Okentsang confirmed.

“It’s a freak death incident that has shocked people. It’s a fresh matter. Our investigation is still at initial stages,” the officer said.
