#KHAYELITSHA - A young woman survived a rape ordeal on Sunday afternoon after her would-be rapist was knocked dead by a car on the N2 near Site C.

According to eyewitness reports, the woman was walking to Driftsands using the fly-over pedestrian bridge when an okapi carrying lusty man accosted her.

"He dragged me back towards Site C, I begged him not to harm me. We walked and when we found a gap in the wall, he was the first to crawl in and I used that chance to run away from him. He was quick he grabbed me by the hair but after a struggle, I got free and ran into the N2," she said sobbing.

The man followed her but his chase was cut short as an oncoming car hit him.

An ambulance arrived but nothing could be done to save the man.

Police spokesman Marcellus Rajap would not comment at this stage but said he will look into the matter.

Meanwhile, a preliminary report from Western Cape Provincial Traffic Services indicates that seven people died on the province’s roads over the weekend. 

The Minister of Police Fikile Mbalula will today release crime statistics.
