Hummer driver still on the run

2010-10-20 08:06
Johannesburg - Gauteng police on Wednesday morning were still searching for the man that allegedly killed two motorcyclists when he crashed into them while driving his stepmother's Hummer.

"We are still searching for him...we are following up on a few leads that we have," Warrant Officer Matthews Nkoadi said.

It was reported on Radio Jacaranda's Tuesday morning bulletin that his stepmother had received an SMS from the 31-year-old man.

She was trying to persuade him to return home, apparently from Zimbabwe, but that he was afraid to return to South Africa.

Speculation

Nkoadi said he could still not confirm this report and said it was speculation until facts could be found.

The 31-year-old man had not been seen since he fled the scene of the accident on Rachel de Beer road in Pretoria North on Saturday morning.

Police do not know what led to the accident.

Shortly after the crash, the two motorcycles and the Hummer caught fire. Bikers Peter Coetzee and Johannes Kruger died at the scene.

A third biker, D Coetzee, was injured and is still in hospital.

The Hummer driver faces at least two charges of culpable homicide, a charge of deserting an accident scene, and a charge of failing to report an accident.
