CRASH CLAIMS 7: Two more teenagers have died as a result of a Nissan Navara overturning in Mpumalanga, the fatalities are now at 7.

NELSPRUIT - Two more teenagers, one of them the 16-year-old driver, have died in hospital as a result of a bakkie crash in Bushbuckridge on New Year's Eve.

The two deaths bring the death toll to seven, the Mpumalanga community safety department said.

A Nissan Navara, being driven by a boy initially thought to be 14, rolled at New Forest, between Thulamahashe and Dwarsloop, at 11:40pm on December 31, 2012. Six people were seriously injured.

REPORTED AS STOLEN

Community safety and liaison MEC Vusi Shongwe on Tuesday, January 1, 2013, called for the bakkie's owner to be arrested "as accidents such as these could be avoided by not allowing youngsters access to vehicles".

However, David Mabuza, premier of Mpumalanga, confirmed on Wednesday Jan 2, that the teenager's parents reported the vehicle stolen on Tuesday.

"As a department we will not be opening a case but the police would continue with their investigations."

The deceased are still being identified.
