Pretoria – As two bikers were buried in Pretoria's northern suburbs on Friday, police were still hunting for the man who allegedly drove the Hummer that killed them.

The bodies of bikers Pieter Coetzee and Johannes Kruger were escorted to the Zandfontein Cemetery by a cavalcade of about 180 bikers from Pretoria's Kameeldrift suburb.

The two were killed last Saturday when they were struck by the Hummer on Rachel de Beer Road in Pretoria North. The two motorcycles and the Hummer caught fire. Coetzee and Kruger died at the scene. The 31-year old Hummer driver fled the scene.

A third biker, Pieter Coetzee jnr, was injured and still in hospital.

Warrant Officer Matthews Nkoadi said police were looking for the man. Earlier this week there were unconfirmed reports he was hiding in Zimbabwe.
