A case of reckless and negligent driving has been registered at the Katima Mulilo Police Station after a truck overturned along the Trans Caprivi highway.

The incident took place at Liselo, 15 Kilometers west of Katima Mulilo after the driver allegedly lost control and overturned.

Acting Regional Commander for Zambezi, Deputy Commissioner, Joseph Nehemia, said the truck, coming from Zambia, was carrying bags of copper concentrate and headed to Walvis Bay.

It took the police and some Military personnel and trucks more than seven hours to remove the truck and bags of copper from the road before the road became open to motorists.

The driver, identified as a 41-year-old Zimbabwean national whose name is known, was taken to Katima Mulilo state hospital for treatment and medical examinations.

He has been reported to be in a stable condition.
