Serious accident

Unread post by Yoda » Sun Nov 27, 2016 1:07 pm

I see on social media there is a report of a serious accident on the Skukuza/ Satara road yesterday
Anyone have info on this?

Apparently someone was badly hurt.
Wishing a quick recovery.

There are various reports on FB about this sad accident. Some reports say it happened on the Skukuza-Satara road and other say on the H10, which is the Lower Sabie-Tshokwane road.

Wherever it did happen, we wish the injured couple all the best for a speedy recovery.

I am sure we will be updated in due course.

I am waiting for a formal announcement from SANParks once all parties have been consulted when we will have the correct information.

Thank you Elsa.

There has been so much interest in this accident, I think people will appreciate some sort of statement.

How very sad and unnecessary - speeding and probably not looking ahead :sniper:
May the couple make a speedy recovery :gflower:

I found an article with photos on an online newspaper.
Looked to me like the Skuks/Satara road.

Awaiting an official statement.
