A SAND truck driver narrowly escaped death when the vehicle he was driving this morning overturned at a bridge in Groot Aub.
The accident attracted a crowd at the small town, some 40 kilometers outside windhoek. An eyewitness told Informante that ambulance emergency services were called to the scene.
Meanwhile, the truck is still blocking the bridge, forcing motorists who make use of that road to find alternative routes.
“The driver is injured but he looks stable. We thank God the worst did not happen as the truck could have rolled over the bridge. We are waiting for the police and the ambulance to safely take the man to the hospital,” he said.
The accident happened at the main road on the entrance of Groot Aub.
