Four accidents were reported in the Erongo Region over the weekend. Two of these incidents were quad bike accidents.

With regard to the quad bike accidents, one occurred near Swakopmund and the other near Langstrand. Windy conditions the past few days resulted in dune formations shifting and so called false dunes forming. Quad riders not familiar with the terrain are often at risk.
