Crash at Langstrand

Two people sustained injuries in an accident at the entrance to Langstrand (”old entrance”) on the B2 coastal road early yesterday. Three of the vehi-cles involved were occupied by tourists.

Video footage of the accident shows a vehicle coming from the direction of Walvis Bay crashing into a vehicle that wanted to turn right to Langstrand. A third vehicle coming from the direction of Swakopmund was also hit by the oncoming vehicle in the process. Traffic authorities are examining close circuit television material of the crash to determine who was at fault.
This particular intersection has been the stage for several deadly vehicle accidents in the past. (This was the second accident on the B2 coastal road this week, leading to traffic authorities renewing calls for motorists to drive safe).
