An old man died on the spot in a fatal accident which involved a donkey cart and a big truck at Marula lands near Makobo village on Monday.

The 89-year-old man from Makobo village died after he was run over by the truck which allegedly had a tyre burst and lost control along the Francistown/Orapa road. The old man whose names cannot be revealed as his next of kin are yet to be informed is currently in Mortuary.

He was killed together with one of his donkeys.

Tati-town Police Station Commander Tebogo Madisa said the old man was fixing something on the donkey cart on the roadside when the meandering truck which was out of control knocked and killed him in the early hours of Monday morning.

“We understand that the truck-driver lost control of his vehicle after a tyre burst. The old man sustained serious injuries on the head and all his legs were broken which resulted in his sudden death,” Madisa said adding that one of the donkeys was also killed instantly during the fatal accident.

The driver of the truck and his passenger escaped the accident with no injuries.
