PE boy killed, another injured on N2 highway


Port Elizabeth police are investigating a case of culpable homicide after a young boy was killed, and another one seriously injured, while running across the N2 freeway in Kabega Park on Saturday afternoon.

Spokesperson, Colonel Pricilla Naidu says it is alleged that the boys, aged between 12 and 13, were trying to rob a female hitch-hiker, who was standing on the N2 heading towards Humansdorp.

She says when a passing motorist stopped to help the woman, the boys ran across the freeway.

They were hit by a Toyota Quantum taxi heading towards Port Elizabeth.

Naidu says one of the boys died on impact, while the other was transported to hospital in a serious condition.

She said it was suspected that they were both from Helenvale.

Police are appealing to anyone who may assist in tracing the children’s parents to contact the Kabega Park police station.
