Deputy commissioner Erastus Iikuyu confirmed the incident saying it took place on Saturday morning at 10:00.
“The driver of a silver Toyota pick-up went to the dump site to dump some rubbish. Martin Kanyembu (35) allegedly jumped onto the trailer the vehicle was pulling while it was still in motion.”
Iikuyu said the victim fell from the trailer and a wheel ran over his stomach. Kanyembu was taken to Walvis Bay State Hospital in a critical condition but later succumbed to his injuries. His next of kin have been informed.
Iikuyu explained that the driver was not arrested pending a decision by the prosecutor general.
