Oxford Road accident

A shocking accident on Oxford Road in Johannesburg involving an Audi R8 left a drug suspect and police officer dead. See the pictures.

Johannesburg - The investigation into the crash of an Audi R8, in which the driver and a police officer were killed, has been escalated to a provincial level, the police said on Wednesday.

This comes after reports that the docket concerning the case had gone missing, Eyewitness News reported.

The Independent Police Investigative Directorate is also investigating but has apparently battled to obtain the case docket.

The driver of the supercar and a Sandton police officer who was with him were killed when the car crashed in Oxford Road last week.
