A 16-month-old child was nearly hit by a truck on Thursday as he was walking along the N1 freeway near the Grasmere offramp, said Gauteng traffic police.

“It is suspected that the child was dropped on the freeway since there are no houses around,” spokeswoman Busaphi Nxumalo said.

She said traffic police patrolling the N1 noticed a truck swerving and then saw a child walking on the freeway at around 7pm.

He was taken by police to a place of safety while they searched for his mother, she said. - Sapa
