Pretoria - A man accused of killing five joggers when he crashed into them while driving in an intoxicated state, appeared in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Sibusiso Langa, 44, faces five charges of murder, one of attempted murder and one of drunken driving.

Proceedings against Langa, who was wearing a pin-striped suit and who hails from Cosmosdal near Midrand, were postponed to Friday.

He was allegedly drunk when he ran the runners over on Saturday morning.

Four women and a man were killed in the accident. Another man was taken to a nearby hospital with critical injuries.

The runners were preparing for the Soweto Marathon when they were hit by the Mercedes-Benz ML500.
