Three kids killed in crash

Comment on this story

Three children were killed and another was critically injured on Friday when a bakkie crashed into them on the R102 near Mdeni in KwaZulu-Natal, an official said.

Transport spokesman Kwanele Ncalane said the four children were on their way to school.

“The driver of a bakkie lost control of his vehicle and crashed into the children at about 7am.”

Three children - two girls and a boy - were declared dead on the scene.

The fourth child, a boy, was rushed to a nearby hospital with serious injuries.

“The boy is fighting for his life and is in a very critical condition,” Ncalane said.

The four children were apparently related.

The driver of the bakkie faces three charges of culpable homicide, he said. - Sapa
