Pedestrian killed after being hit by two cars

“The pedestrian was hit by a Renault Megane around 17:45 while he was seemingly trying to cross the road. After being hit, a second vehicle drove over the man and sped away,” said Romano van der Spuy, spokesperson for the Hartbeespoort Community Policing Forum.
A crowd of about 40 people gathered and started pelting bricks at a father, mother and baby inside the Renault Megane on the scene. “The police were called and more police backup was required when the crowd turned on the police,” Van der Spuy said. One man in the crowd was arrested for malicious damage to property and the police are looking for more people.
A case of manslaughter was opened at the Hartbeespoort police station and witnesses who might have seen the second vehicle that failed to stop, are required to contact the Hartbeespoort police.
Three pedestrians were killed here last year and in December an 18-year-old boy lost his leg when he was hit by a vehicle.
The Madibeng Municipality and SANRAL will now be approached to address safety issues on this dangerous road.
