A 28-year-old woman died at Mururani village in the Kavango West region on Tuesday after she was hit by a truck trying to cross the road.

The Kavango West crime investigations coordinator, Deputy Commissioner Rudolf Mbumba told Nampa on Wednesday the incident happened at around 18h00.

The deceased has been identified as Christine Mutero and her next of kin have been informed.

It is alleged that the driver of a white truck hit the deceased when she was crossing the road approximately 2 kilometers to the Mururani checkpoint on the Trans Caprivi high way.

She died on the spot.

Mbumba cautioned members of the public to cross the road with caution since the high way is a busy road.

He also advised drivers to drive within the required speed limit to avoid unnecessary loss of life.
