Kimberley police are investigating a case of culpable homicide after 47-year-old Eunice Maureen Beerkat was killed in a hit and run accident on Barkley Road, between Santa Centre and Homestead. It is alleged that on Sunday, 03 May 2015 at approximately 19:00, the driver of a white car hit the deceased with the vehicle and after the incident sped off from the scene without ascertaining the injuries sustained by the deceased.
Ms Beerkat was transported to the local hospital where she later passed on as a result of injuries sustained during the accident.
The driver of the white vehicle is still at large. However we are appealing to members of the public to assist the police with the information which may lead to the arrest of the driver of the white car, alternatively the driver of the white car can hand himself or herself to Kimberley police station or to any nearest police station.
