2012-07-09 13:21

A man arrested for speeding on the N1 to Pretoria has pleaded guilty to reckless and negligent driving in the Pretoria Magistrates’ Court.

Adam Hack (20) was fined R1 500 for driving at 188km/h, Gauteng traffic police spokesperson Busaphi Nxumalo said.

Hack and his father, David (55), were arrested yesterday for speeding in their Porsche GT3s. David was driving at 234km/h, ahead of Adam.

David would appear in the same court tomorrow, facing charges of reckless and negligent driving, with an alternative charge of exceeding the general speed limit of 120km/h.

Nxumalo said Adam was a South African Olympic swimmer, but Swimming SA could not confirm this.

Beeld newspaper reported that Swimming SA spokesperson Godfrey Monei knew most of the Olympic team swimmers, but did not know of an Adam Hack.

The South African swimming team for the London Olympic Games is in camp in Monaco where they are hosted by Princess Charlene of Monaco, an ex-South Africa Olympic swimmer.
