Driver roasted in horror crash

A truck driver died tragically yesterday when he lost control of the truck, which then overturned several times before exploding right in the middle of the notorious Malagwane Hill, literally roasting him beyond recognition.

This accident, which left scores of motorists shell-shocked, happened just before noon yesterday near Setsembiso Sebunye (Bahai) High School.

It was a chaotic scene as some impatient motorists blew their horns and demanded way.
