Authorities are searching for the driver of the earthmover which was involved in a fatal crash yesterday near Gouda.

Eight people died after the truck they were travelling in crashed into the earthmover before plunging over a bridge on the R44.

After officials investigated they found that the earthmover was unlicensed and unregistered.

MEC for Transport in the Western Cape Robin Carlisle said the driver fled the scene soon after the accident took place.

Carlisle said that leaving the earthmover on the side of the road was reckless.

He added that it’s an act of irresponsibility and at the end of the day people are dead and it’s a disgrace.

Western Cape Traffic Chief Kenny Africa said they are considering murder charges against the driver as well as the driver of yesterdays Kombi crash.

The Kombi collided with a bread truck killing the five occupants.

Africa said they have not yet decided on the charges.
