Four people have been killed and two others injured in a collision between two vehicles on the N1 Boekenhout outside Bela-Bela in Limpopo. The injured have been taken to hospital.
Traffic spokesperson Tidimalo Chuene says the deceased were occupants of one of the vehicles.
The identities of the deceased driver and three passengers have not been released.
Chuene says they suspect driver fatigue as a possible cause of the collision.
“Fatigue is cited as the possible cause of the accident. We are, of course, deeply saddened by the news and mourn with the bereaved families. We equally continue to plead with motorists to obey the rules of the road all the time, and to rest whenever needed for them to arrive alive at their respective destinations.”
