Motoring editor hurt in crash

WITNESS motoring editor Evan Rothman (pictured) is recovering in hospital after a car accident on Tuesday night.

Rothman yesterday underwent surgery to his abdomen and was reported to be in a stable condition at St Anne's hospital.

His father, Gavin Rothman, told The Witness that although in pain after the operation, his son was doing fine.

“He was driving a test car, an Audi, when the accident occurred on Town Bush Valley Road, near Cascades. We don't really know what happened, but it seems he hit a tree. Evan managed to climb out of the vehicle after the accident and walked away to sit on the verge. He was then assisted by friends.”

Recently Rothman was chosen as the best driver at an advanced driving course held in Johannesburg. Rothman's colleague, Witness motoring consultant George Papatheodorou, said Rothman was very humble about his latest achievement.
