A passenger in an Opel Corsa lost his life when the driver, under the influence of alcohol lost control over the vehicle causing it to overturn about 10 km from Walvis Bay on the C 14 road this past Saturday.

The 49-year-old driver was also injured and arrested after he tested positive for alcohol and now faces charges of culpable homicide and drunken driving. He was admitted in the Walvis Bay state hospital in a stable condition and is under police guard. Shikalepo Matheus Hamutenya (47), passed away at the scene of the accident and a third person traveling in the same car, Wilhelm van Wyk (40), also sustained injuries and was admitted in the Walvis Bay state hospital.
