More concerns about the safety of motorists on the Aston Bay road have arisen following an accident that took place over the weekend.
According to witnesses, a 30 year old male was driving on the road when an 11 year old child jumped into the road. Apparently it is a game to the children – commonly referred to as ” playing chicken”.
The driver of the car swerved to avoid the child and his car subsequently left the road and crashed into the nearly bushes.
The driver sustained minor injuries and the Police are investigating the accident, according to Sergeant Majola Nkohli from the South African Police.
The latest incident follows that of a car being hit with a bottle near the Ocean View traffic circle.
