Reckless drivers warned after learners knocked by speeding car


Limpopo police have on Saturday condemned reckless driving along roads and streets which are crossing in and around schools.

This follows a collision which occurred in Vuwani Policing area near Thohoyandou.

It is alleged that three minor children aged between five and seven years old were knocked by a speeding car along Tshivhulana tarmac road next to Tshivhulana Primary School on Friday.

According to Arrive Alive, Police were notified, reacted swiftly and found the three victims still lying on the ground next to the road with serious injuries.

“They were subsequently taken to the hospital by ambulance but the seven-year-old was unfortunately certified dead on arrival.

“The deceased Vutomi Baloyi and the two survivors were identified as learners from this Primary School and are staying in this village.”

Arrive Alive urged motorists to drive considerably whenever they drive along any street or road passing next to the schools to prevent this type of incidents from happening.

“The law enforcement agencies, including other relevant role players, the local and school authorities, must work together and apply the no-nonsense approach to any driver who continue driving inconsiderably in and around the schools and they must be dealt with accordingly and without compromise.”

Police investigations are still continuing.
