Police in Storms River are investigating a culpable homicide case following the death of a woman who was knocked down by a bakkie.
The incident occurred at about 3pm on Saturday, close to Woodlands. “The pedestrian [aged 39] died on the scene,” Captain Gerda Swart said.
The bakkie driver was not under the influence of alcohol, she said.
There was, however, a lot of smoke on the road from the fires that raged along the Garden Route.
