Road Accident

Bolt Driver Hanged Himself On A Tree Daylight. See What He Did That Left People Angry?

Five people were killed in the crash, and the bolt driver took his own life at the scene.

After his bus flipped over on Alma Road in Welkom, Free State, a bolt driver hanged himself from a nearby tree. At least six people were killed.

According to a Free State Department of Health spokesperson, the 31-year-old male driver was discovered hanging from a tree with a safety belt he tore from the bolt seats' seat belts.

The bolt driver decided to commit suicide after witnessing the devastation he had caused to the other victims. Because of this, we believed that he felt personally responsible for the deaths and ultimately decided to take his own life, as Mvambi put it:

While emergency medical personnel were speaking to Mvambi, he was informed of the deaths of his passengers by the driver. He then proceeded to a location where he could hang himself in complete secrecy.

After the tragedy, passengers reported an altercation between the driver and passengers who believed the route was incorrect to emergency responders.

"They said the driver took the wrong route, and during the argument the driver hit the pavement, and the bolt overturned," he said when the argument ensued. In addition, they claimed that the bolt was flipped over because the driver had hit the pavement.

According to Mvambi, the bolt tipped over around 5:00 a.m. on Saturday, killing five people and injuring one, including one who is in critical condition, at the site.

"the bolt was coming from Durban, halting at Welkom, and then heading to Bloemfontein." he stated in his remarks.

According to Mvambi, three people were killed at the scene and two more died later in the hospital. Three of the victims were children.
