A well known funeral undertaker’s hearse caused havoc when its driver killed two grade 1 pupils of Mahlahle primary school in Malamulele on Friday afternoon.
The driver allegedly ran over two school children killing them on the scene. The driver was rescued by the police after angry community members had started assaulting him.
Police said the children were coming out of school on their way home when the speeding vehicle ploughed into a group of pupils.
The learners at the Mahlahle School were left traumatised following the accident.
Malamulele police spokesperson Captain Fatuwani Nevhunda said the suspect aged 40 is expected to appear in the local magistrate’s court on Monday.
