Teen dies during N2 hijacking

The police are urgently trying to trace the parents of two boys who were victims of a serious accident on the N2 freeway in Kabega Park, Port Elizabeth on Saturday February 8, 2020. The boys aged approximately 12 and 13 years old were attempting to rob a female hitch-hiker who was on the N2 towards Mossel Bay.

A passing motorist stopped to help the woman, and as the boys ran across the freeway, they were hit by a Quantum taxi heading towards Port Elizabeth. One of the boys died on impact while the other is in hospital in a serious condition. Both children are coloured males and are suspected to be from Helenvale.
