GRAAFF-REINET NEWS - Well-known Graaff-Reinet pathology services manager Jacque Wagener and his wife Naomi (a medical sister) escaped death miraculously after they collided with a kudu on Tuesday 1 October.
Jacque and Naomi both work for the Graaff-Reinet Forensic Pathology Service mortuary. They were on their way to pick up a victim of a fatal accident near Cookhouse shortly after midnight when a kudu suddenly jumped in from of their vehicle.
The vehicle's front window was broken by the kudu's horn, and the car was damaged in such a way that it will be written off. The animal, unfortunately, died. The accident happened between Somerset East and Cookhouse.
Both passengers were happy to be alive, although bruised and with sore bodies and blue spots. Jacque may have to undergo a knee operation, as his one knee was also seriously injured.
It was Naomi’s first accident since she and Jacque started work at the Forensic Pathology Services. Jacque was previously in a collision with a kudu.
