Johannesburg - An unmarked police vehicle careened off the M1 north and crashed through the roof of a house in Xavier, south of Johannesburg, at noon on Friday.

Ailon Webb, 28, was told that the vehicle hit his three-bedroomed house during a police chase on the highway.

It did not touch the high fence around the property, but damaged the bedrooms and bathrooms inside.

The Johannesburg Central Police Station officer driving the Volkswagen Golf 5 was injured in the accident and was taken to the Garden City Hospital, said Constable Moloko Kgatla. His condition was not known.

Kgatla said a case of reckless or negligent driving had been opened.

The car was still on its side in the house on Friday night. "There are a lot of policemen here," Webb said.
