A horrific accident claims eight lives including a three months old baby at Ganyesa and Vryburg.

The accident occurred when two vehicles collided head-on resulting in the same vehicles catching fire immediately where some people from both cars were burnt beyond recognition in the Dr Ruth Segomotsi Mompati District.

The fire made it difficult to rescue passengers who were trapped according to North West Community Safety and Transport Spokesperson Alpheus Koonyaditse.


The MEC for the Department of Community Safety and Transport Management, Sello Lehari passed on condolences to the bereaved families.

“We would like to pass our deepest condolences to the families of all the deceased and wish them strength during this difficult time. It is difficult to accept the passing of a loved one. It is even more so when the passing is as tragic as this one”, said MEC Lehari.

The incident occurred Saturday midday, both sedans were travelling on opposite directions.

“Four other passengers also died at the scene of the accident bringing a total to seven; four of whom are women. A twenty nine (29) old woman who survived with her three months old baby girl were rushed to the hospital.”

“Sadly, it was discovered that the baby passed on as they arrived at the hospital. May they rest in eternal peace”, added MEC Lehari.
