A two-year-old boy died in a fatal accident on the N9 just outside Graaff-Reinet on Friday morning, an official said

Eastern Cape traffic department spokesman Charles Bramwell said the accident occurred just after 3am on the N9 from Aberdeen to Graaff-Reinet, about 20 km outside Graaff-Reinet.

Bramwell said a family, travelling from the Western Cape to the Eastern Cape in a VW Polo, tried to avoid hitting a kudu when the driver lost control and the vehicle overturned.

The toddler died instantly while his mother and father were taken to Midlands Hospital.

Police are investigating a case of culpable homicide.
