According to officials on the scene, the accident happened at about 7 am. Apparently, the driver of an Uno was travelling along Lotz Street in Mindalore, heading to Main Reef Road. The driver failed to stop at the stop sign and did not see the motorcycle heading his way.

He collided with the motorcycle, knocking the two occupants, one in his thirties and the other in her mid-twenties, from the motorcycle, killing them on impact.

The police, CPF and ambulances arrived shortly after the incident. Unfortunately, the ambulance personnel could not resuscitate the victims, and they were declared dead on the scene.

Motorists heading to Krugersdorp using Main Reef Road are advised to use alternative roads.
