Two people, a driver and a passenger, died on Thursday morning in a road mishap about 4km towards Serule village. No2 Officer Commanding, Senior Superintendent Paul Oketsang told The Monitor the accident occurred when a Toyota Hilux, GD6 pulling a trailer attempted to overtake but ended up colliding with a Toyota Camry at around 5am.

Oketsang stated that following the collision, the GD6 caught fire along with the trailer it was pulling, which carried huge luggage that burnt to ashes. He said the Toyota GD6 bearing South African plate numbers was driven by a 23-year-old Zimbabwean man and it was heading to the north coming from the south.

“The Toyota Camry that was driven by a 60-year-old Motswana man was facing south from the northern part of the country when the vehicles collided. The GD6 had three people on board, the driver and two male passengers who are all currently fighting for their lives at Nyangabgwe Referral Hospital {in Francistown} together with the sole survivor of the Toyota Camry,” he said.
