Six-Year-Old Boy Jumps Off Moving Truck And Dies

A six-year-old boy, Admire Makazhange reportedly jumped off a moving vehicle and sustained a deep cut in the head which eventually killed him.

The Chronicle reports that Admire was aboard a pick-up truck travelling from Tsholotsho to Bulawayo when he jumped off.

He was rushed to Mpilo Central Hospital where he died four days after admission. The incident was confirmed by Matabeleland North police spokesperson Chief Inspector Siphiwe Makonese who said police are still unaware of what really transpired. She said:

The minor was travelling in the back of a pick-up truck with seven other passengers on board from Tsholotsho to Bulawayo. As the driver approached the 40km peg along Bulawayo-Tsholotsho road, he realised through the rearview mirror that the late Admire Makangadze had jumped off the moving vehicle. When he stopped the vehicle to check, he observed that the deceased had sustained a deep cut to the head.

After jumping out of a moving vehicle he sustained a deep cut on the head. He was admitted to Mpilo Hospital where his condition deteriorated and he passed away on January 25, 2020.

Makonese urged members of the public to report all road traffic accidents to the police.
