The N2 near Mossel Bay was the tragic scene of a fatal accident on Saturday afternoon, when a 33-year-old man lost his life. Two other individuals involved sustained injuries, adding greater concern to the already-sorrowful event.

Witnesses reported that the accident involved a bakkie (pick-up truck), which seemingly lost control on the N2 between Dana Bay and the Langeberg Mall. Warrant Officer Kappie Kapp, the police spokesperson, specified that these insights are based on preliminary investigations. The accident led to temporary road closure as emergency response teams attended to the fallen and injured, and police began investigating the incident.

Details surrounding the cause of the fatal accident have not yet been established, leaving a myriad of questions unanswered. Locally based Kwanonqaba police are presently carrying out a comprehensive investigation, with a case of culpable homicide being pursued.

As the Mossel Bay community grapples with this tragic loss, authorities are urging motorists to exercise caution on the N2 and other highways, and to abide by the road safety regulations.
