A 38-year- old Somali man was killed when two bakkies crashed between Koster and Rustenburg on Saturday, said department spokesperson Lesiba Kgwele in a statement.
“The man was apparently trying to avoid a bakkie that was on two lanes due to suspected drunken driving. The driver and passenger from the other bakkie sustained critical injuries in the collision.”
In another accident a 52-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman were killed on the N14 between Vryburg and Kuruman on Friday.
A Toyota Avanza was allegedly side swept by a Volkswagen Polo which was overtaking.
“The Avanza hit a truck which it was following from behind. The truck reportedly dragged the Avanza for a couple of metres before it got detached and rolled several times.”
The driver of the Toyota Avanza was thrown out of the vehicle and the woman was in the car. They both died on the scene.
Police were investigating three cases of culpable homicide, suspected drunken driving and reckless driving.
