TAKATOKWANE: Police investigating Friday’s fatal accident that killed seven students say the driver of the truck in the incident could face charges, should it be found that his vehicle was overloaded.

The driver of the truck is still admitted at the Scottish Livingstone Hospital in Molepolole. Matsha accident investigation officer from the Botswana Police Service, Assistant Commissioner Engemadzo Sechele, who is the Divisional Traffic Officer South told Mmegi here yesterday that investigations were ongoing.

“We are yet to determine whether the truck could accommodate over 126 people together with luggage,” Sechele said. “When we do, that is when we will determine whether there was an overload or not.”
