    That is absolutely terrible news, I just read the news report.

    Nuusbreker: Minstens ses mense het laat vanmiddag gesterf in 'n gru-ongeluk naby Hentiesbaai. Twee motors het reg van voor gebots op die C-34 kusroete. Drie van die oorledenes het 'n vlammedood gesterf nadat albei voertuie aan die brand geslaan het. Voorlopige inligting dui daarop dat 'n kind die ongeluk oorleef het en nou in die hospitaal op Swakopmund gestabiliseer word.
    Dit het intussen aan die lig gekom dat 'n Toyota Land Cruiser en 'n Ford Ranger in die ongeluk betrokke was. Die pad tussen Jakkalsputz en Hentiesbaai is voorlopig vir verkeer gesluit.

    Just the Cruiser burst into flames, the ford bakkie didnt.

    The road was opened about 45 minutes after the accident happened.

    There were only 2 people in the cruiser, the rest were in the ford bakkie as far as we know. Names of 2 of the people are known to me, they were in the cruiser.

    On top of this all, a 6 year old boy was knocked over in the main street of Henties this morning. He unfortunately also passed away.

    Terrible this. My sincerere condolences to the families of all involved.

    Also a reminder to stay safe and sane on the roads. The driver of one of these vehicles is a very well known figure in motorsport, having several national rally and oval track victories to his name.

    The accident still happened.....

    Just an update on the details.

    There were 3 people in the cruiser and 4 in the bakkie. Only survivor at this stage is a 16 year old girl.

    The authorities have asked that any eye witnesses come forward so as to ascertain what the cause was.
