Three children were killed and another was critically injured when a bakkie crashed into them on the R102 near Mandeni in KwaZulu-Natal.

Transport spokesperson Kwanele Ncalane said today the four children were on their way to school.

“The driver of a bakkie lost control of his vehicle and crashed into the children at about 7am.”

Three children – two girls and a boy – were declared dead on the scene.

The fourth child, a boy, was rushed to a nearby hospital with serious injuries.

“The boy is fighting for his life and is in a very critical condition,” Ncalane said.

The four children were apparently related.

The driver of the bakkie faces three charges of culpable homicide, he said.
