Four people died while four survived without injuries following a tragic accident that involved two cars and a horse-trailer truck along A1 Highway on Friday night.

The officer commanding, senior superintendent Ruben Mphoeng confirmed the incident saying it occurred at around 11pm about 8km away from Dibete village towards the northern side.

“We do not have concrete evidence, but it appears that the Mercedes Benz that was coming from the northern side that was following a horse-trailer truck was trying to overtake when it hit the truck at the back. After hitting the truck at the back the car shifted and collided with the oncoming Toyota Hilux that was heading north,” Mphoeng said.
