The impact of a collision between two vehicles at the corner of Church and Marshall streets during the lunch hour on Tuesday sent one vehicle capsizing and rolling for some distance before landing on its roof near the bridge over Sterkloop Spruit. The other vehicle was also propelled for some metres down Church Street.
Eyewitnesses alleged that the driver of the overturned vehicle and his two passengers had suffered serious injuries and were rushed to hospital. The driver of the other car was reportedly also attended to by paramedics and was no longer on the scene.
The eyewitnesses also alleged that the driver of the overturned vehicle had picked up two hitchhikers in an area serviced by taxis who then gave chase resulting in the driver speeding to get away and skipping the traffic light.
