'Killer' Hummer driver appears in court
Pretoria - A boyish-looking 31-year-old man who allegedly ran over and killed two motorcyclists with a stolen Hummer appeared briefly in the Pretoria North Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
The case against Indi Himalindi Chiyabu, who faces two charges of culpable homicide, was adjourned to January 10 to allow his lawyer Rudolph Mogashoa to receive all the evidence from the State.
Bikers Johannes Kruger and Pieter Coetzee were killed when the Hummer which Chiyabu was allegedly driving ploughed into them on Rachel de Beer Road in Pretoria on October 16 2010.
Two motorcycles and the Hummer caught fire. Coetzee and Kruger died at the scene. Chiyabu was initially reported to have fled the accident scene.
Coetzee's son, also called Pieter, lost his leg in the accident.
