Family seek hit and run information

2016-12-07 06:01

THE family of an elderly Pietermaritzburg couple is looking for information following a hit and run that took place on 9 November between 9.15pm and 9.40pm.

The couple were on their way home from a family gathering in Chase Valley when their car was t-boned at the Boshoff and Berg street intersection.

According to their son, Steven King, the other driver had jumped the red traffic light and hit the couple’s vehicle full on the driver’s side. The driver got out and checked his car, but then left without checking on the elderly couple, or exchanging information.

“My mom turned 73 that day so it wasn’t a very happy day for them. The problem is that they now sit without transport. They are both pensioners with limited income. The other car was a dark colour and would have considerable damage to the front of his vehicle,” he said.

Anyone with information can phone King on 082 920 5799. - Supplied.
