Pretoria - Police are looking for the driver of a Jaguar XF that crashed into a house in Centurion on Sunday morning, causing extensive damage.

The driver of the car fled the scene of the accident and in the back of the car, police found an empty bottle of Jameson whisky and a crate of Amstel Lager, reported Beeld.

“We woke up with a huge fright at about 03:00 after hearing a loud bang and were in the garage at about 03:04. The driver was already gone,” said Zee Pieterse, who lived in the house.  

The car had driven the front gate off its hinges and crashed with the gate through the garage doors and into a pillar in the garage.

“It’s a lot of damage because the Jaguar crashed into one of the cars in the garage and the pillar fell onto the other car. So there is damage to the gate, the garage and both our cars,” said Pieterse.

Police followed scrape marks left on the tar for 5km before they found the Jaguar's missing tyre.

Police said they hoped to find the driver soon.

The front passenger door was open, which indicated that another person might have been in the car as well.

An ID card with a staff number and the country’s coat of arms was found in the car.
