A POLICE convoy escorting Prime Minister Hage Geingob to Omaruru on Wednesday led to a minor accident involving to private vehicles.
The accident took place near Vergenoeg between Arandis and Usakos while a police convoy was escorting Geingob from the coast to Karibib, where another convoy would have escorted him further to Omaruru.
According to motorists, the convoy apparently frustrated other road users on the B2 by allegedly "driving them off the road".
Erongo's police commander, Commissioner Samuel //Hoebeb, who confirmed the accident, said that the convoy was only using a single lane in consideration of other road users, and not both as sometimes is the case.
On Wednesday, a driver (when seeing the flashing blue lights of the oncoming convoy), slowed down with the intention to pull off. This was when a following motorist allegedly slammed into the rear-end of the vehicle which slowed down, just as the convoy was about to pass.
"Fortunately it was not a serious collision and there were no injuries," said //Hoebeb.
The convoy apparently continued without stopping, but a police patrol vehicle was summoned to attend to the scene, according to the police chief.
