Johannesburg - Four people were arrested in Bedfordview on Thursday when they were found in possession of a rhino horn after a car crash, Gauteng police said.
Lieutenant Colonel Tshisikhawe Ndou said their vehicle car crashed into another car on the N3.
Afterwards, the driver of the other car saw them hiding a cooler bag under a nearby tree.
"Police responded to the scene and during the investigation they discovered the rhino horn in the cooler bag and it was still bleeding.
