AN eleven-year-old boy from Otjiwarongo instantly died on Tuesday when a disposal truck ran over him.
It is alleged that the boy tried to climb on the truck when he saw it approach the dumpsite.
He reportedly missed the handle and fell to the ground, leading to the fatal accident.
The boy, identified as Petrus Kapuka’s next of kin have been informed. Maureen Mbeha of the Otjozondjupa region confirmed.
