A grade 1 pupil at Curro Thatchfield in Centurion, Tshwane, Gauteng was declared dead on the scene on Wednesday after being knocked down by a car, allegedly driven by a mother who had just dropped off her child off at the same school.

A grade 1 pupil at Curro Thatchfield in Centurion, Tshwane, was declared dead on the scene on Wednesday after being knocked down by a car, allegedly driven by a mother who had just dropped off her child off at the same school.

A parent at the school who witnessed the incident but asked to remain anonymous said the child was run over by a vehicle driven by a woman on Wednesday morning during arrival time.

“That mother was in a hurry and speeding. She seemed to have lost control of the vehicle and then knocked the child. Everything happened so fast and it was just a mess. Security guards were shouting and everyone was running all over the place.

“I still had my children in the car, so I tried to remain calm while I was trying to figure out what really happened,” the parent said.

The parent told TimesLIVE that the mother of the dead pupil was still at the school when the incident happened.

In a holding statement, the school states the pupil died after an incident with a car in the school’s parking lot.

“Curro Holdings confirms that a Grade 1 learner at Curro Thatchfield, Centurion tragically passed away this morning after an incident involving a car accident in the school’s parking lot.

“Counsellors are on site to support the learners and staff at the school.

“Curro’s deepest sympathy and thoughts are with the family and all involved in this terrible tragedy.

“The safety and security of Curro’s learners and staff members remains its top priority and where possible, the group takes a proactive approach in seeking to prevent incidents of this nature.

“The incident is currently being handled by the SAPS,” read the school’s statement.
