B1 collision victim identified

OTJIWARONGO: The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) has confirmed the identity of a man who died in a road crash south of Otjiwarongo Wednesday morning as Francois Seibeb. In an interview with Nampa, NamPol Crime Investigations Coordinator in the Otjozondjupa Region, Deputy Commissioner Edna Nawa, said Seibeb's vehicle collided head-on with a mini-truck belonging to a private courier service on the B1 road south of Otjiwarongo. Nawa said Seibeb, who was alone at the time of the incident, was traveling from the direction of Otjiwarongo towards Okahandja, while the truck was headed in the opposite direction. 'Approximately 10 kilometres south of Otjiwarongo, the two cars collided with severe impact, killing the sedan driver on the spot,' said Nawa. Preliminary police investigations indicate that the truck allegedly veered to the right side of the road, where the collision occurred. The 37-year-old male driver of the truck sustained slight injuries and was treated at the Otjiwarongo State Hospital. A culpable homicide docket has been opened against the truck's driver and police investigations continue. Source: The Namibia Press Agency
