19-year-old man died on the spot

A 19-year-old man died on the spot after the vehicle he was travelling in overturned near Bethanie in the ||Kharas Region on Monday.

The Namibian Police Force's Detective Chief Inspector Jesaias Higoam told Nampa on Tuesday the deceased has been identified as Salomo Ndapandula.

According to Higoam, the accident occurred 40 kilometres outside Bethanie on the Bethanie-Helmeringhausen road around 20h00.

It is alleged that the driver lost control of the vehicle as the road was slippery due to the heavy rain experienced in the area.

'The driver, who is the employer of the deceased, and two other people who were passengers escaped the accident unharmed, while the other two passengers sustained injuries and are being treated at the Keetmanshoop State Hospital,' said Higoam.

The deceased's next of kin have been informed and police investigations continue.
