According to the admin, the family asked if they can have a similar truck to honour his memory and also to put his remains in the back of a trailer. An artist in Hammanskraal, Tshwane then built a mini tuck that carried a message of condolences. They captioned the pics:

“What a sad story was written by Hendrick Africa Craft Works Facebook page. Behind this truck, there is a sad story. The driver of this truck got an accident and died, but before he used to tell his family about the guy in Hammanskraal, Pretoria who built the beautifully handcrafted trucks. So his family organised to contact me [and ask] if I can build the same truck like the one he was driving so that they can put his remains in the back of one of the trailers. RIP TRUCKER.”
