Two school boys aged ten died in an accident in Uitenhage this afternoon. Reports from the scene indicate that the children tried to cross the Old Cape Road at around 13h20 when they landed in front of a vehicle.
Exact detail to the cause of the accident and preceding events will remain a subject for the Uitenhage police to investigate.
Netcare 911 paramedics arrived at the scene and found one child on the gravel next to the Road while the other was found on the roadway. Tragically both children died before our arrival due to the extensive injuries that they sustained.
