THE 45-year-old Eino Kondjeni Nampala, a member of the Namibian Defence Force (NDF), died on the scene of a motor vehicle accident that occurred on Friday afternoon on the road between Karibib and Okahandja.
According to the incident report provided by the Namibian Police in the Erongo Region, the crash occurred when Nampala, who was the driver of the vehicle and two other members of the NDF were travelling in, lost control over the vehicle.
“The bakkie in which the three persons were travelling left the road and hit a culvert, which caused it to veer further from the road until it eventually struck a tree. Nampala sustained severe injuries and passed away on the scene,” the report reads.
The two passengers, a 43-year-old man and a 41-year-old woman sustained moderate to serious injuries and they were transported to the Okahandja State Hospital for further medical treatment.
The accident occurred about 50 kilometres outside Karibib on the B2 Road to Okahandja.
According to the report, the deceased person’s body was taken to mortuary of the Usakos State Hospital from where it will be transported to the Walvis Bay Police mortuary for a post-mortem examination.
