It is alleged that on Thursday, 25 November between 16:00 and 17:00 fifty-year-old Steven Williams was riding his Kawasaki motorbike behind a silver Polo driven by a 40-year-old woman in Dr Swchietering Street, going towards the Ocean View circle in Swakopmund. It is further alleged that whilst they were travelling, the driver of the Polo made a U-Turn in the middle of the road causing Williams to crash into the right back door of the Polo. Mr Williams sustained serious injuries and was rushed to the Swakopmund State hospital where he was certified dead upon his arrival.
The driver of the Polo and her passenger escaped unharmed. A charge of culpable homicide and negligent or reckless driving was laid. Williams was an employee of Rössing at the timer of his passing. The next of kin of the deceased were informed.
