MEC condemns KZN road rage killing
Durban - KwaZulu-Natal Transport MEC Willies Mchunu has condemned the killing of a man on the M34 near Montclair in an apparent act of road rage.
"Road rage is a serious problem that has to be rooted out in our society," he said on Thursday.
"This causes havoc on the road and it must stop."
Lieutenant Colonel Vincent Mdunge said a truck driver became involved in an argument with the driver of an Opel Corsa, who had parked in front of him, at around 12:45 on the M34 in Durban on Wednesday.
"... The truck driver produced a firearm, shooting the driver of the light motor vehicle [in] the forehead," said Mdunge.
The truck driver fled. The driver of the Opel Corsa was declared dead on the scene.
Mdunge said it was not clear what caused the altercation.
"People must be able to control their anger and emotions. This kind of behaviour will not be tolerated on our roads," Mchunu said.
