According to Andries Blaauw, a member of the towing staff who removed the wreck, the deceased was travelling from the direction of Arandis.
Allegedly the truck was turning right onto the Dune 7 road heading for Walvis Bay, when the vehicle hit its tanker trailer.
Clemens Januseb, an eyewitness, was about 100m from the scene when the accident occurred.
“I could not see the car because the truck was blocking the road. When another bystander and myself approached the car, we saw that the driver was moving, but it was not long before he stopped moving. We did not know what to do and did not want to tamper with the scene,” he said.
Emergency services rushed to the scene and removed the driver from the mangled wreck.
No further details have been released yet.
