Police in Francistown are in search of a reckless driver who ran over a 60-year-old pedestrian and killed him.
The second car completely crashed his head, killing him instantly. Instead of stopping to help his victim, the man drove away at high speed and disappeared in the darkness of the night, police have revealed.
Kwakiutl Police traffic officer in Francistown, Sergeant Opelo Olebile, said anyone who has information regarding the accident and the whereabouts of the driver who is believed to have caused the death of the old man, should alert the police. “We are still questioning the first driver to knock the old man down but we also call upon members of the public to help us find the other driver who ran away after hitting and killing the victim from Somerset location,” Olebile said explaining that the accident happened at around 9 pm.
The traffic officer warned pedestrians to be always on the look out for on coming vehicles especially when crossing the A1 road which has proved to be infested with over speeding drivers in the evening. “People should also dress in bright colours so that they can be identified from a distance,” he said.
