THE allegations about tow-truck operators paying desperate people to throw stones into the cars from overhead bridges are still under investigation. Metro police spokesperson senior Superintendent Parboo Sewpersad said that the police had received information about tow-truck operators being involved in the rock throwing incidents in Durban. It’s alleged that operators hire the people to throw stones over the bridges to cause road accidents. “There were two [alleged] incidents reported involving tow-truck operators. However, witnesses didn’t come forward with [further information]. If the witnesses are not coming forwards with the information, the police cannot go further with the investigation,” Sewpersad said.In Verulam a driver of VW Polo survived when a stone was thrown over the bridge into his car on Inanda Road on April 22. According to Reaction Unit South Africa (Rusa), the victim claimed that a group of unknown men threw stones and boulders at his car.
