Superintendent Eugene Msomi said the truck driver ran away when he was stopped by the strikers.

Police closed off Kings Road, Glenugie Road and Sunnyside Lane as strikers gathered.

More than 20 000 workers in the road freight transport sector went on a national strike over their pay increase on Monday.

Unions reverted to a 12% pay demand after rejecting a lower offer by employers on Tuesday.
