      @Danzo-next time when you use "I" know it must always be in capital letter. it's easier. On the bottom left corner of your key board press the button written "Shift",then press any letter you want in caps while holding your shift (there are 2 in your key board). wala you've your caps. @Phillip-Go low on caps. I also wish what you wish for is granted and he lends on top of your car.

    most accidents happen at home - centurion and midrand taking the trophy.

      we've heard enough of Kaizer Chiefs's Eric Mathoho and his people need to go back under the rock you came from.

  • Gerald Beer - 2013-03-10 07:39

    He must have been flying.

  • Bhekokuhle Gumede - 2013-03-10 07:46

    Oh no!!! This article, if we can even call it that, is badly written. I'm sure the drive was flying and had to make an emergency landing.

  • Preshan Naicker - 2013-03-10 08:20

    atleast use spell check!!

  • JanGrimbeek - 2013-03-10 08:22

    In the event that the road is built on a higher level than the houses next to it it is possible, nowadays with all the houses built in "koppie" areas you do get lots of these scenarios.

      Metja Ledwaba - 2013-03-10 08:43

      That is true,especially in klipfontein.

      Heather Campbell Matthewson - 2013-03-10 08:56

      Celeste Mills - 2013-03-10 09:26

      Well according to reports it was a WV, not a VW.. so not the same car you're talking about. Lol

      SharonE - 2013-03-10 13:15

      Yup the one in the article was probably made in China - there is a clue -you have to read the name from right to left!

  • kenneth.fisher.750 - 2013-03-10 08:28

    Great parking skills. Can't say as much for the writing skills.

  • Nkululeko Osman - 2013-03-10 08:31

    come on,you can't just say landed on the roof,before landing u must fly.every 1 knows that.

  • Raven Jimmy - 2013-03-10 08:33

  • Nkosikho Owam Mnqandi - 2013-03-10 09:04

    This story should have been edited before going for print. It really lacks Journalistic approach and sentence construction is bad.

  • Lindy Jeffery - 2013-03-10 09:15

    Is Zuma writing the news now? Sounds like the work of a Std 2 child.

    Everytime news24 report accident or incident involving a vehicle, is Golf are we all S.A. Driving Golf? Or Golf drivers are just treckless? Now they can't even spell VW anymore.

  • Roelof J. Kannenberg - 2013-03-10 10:07

  • M'zerere Meter Maabe - 2013-03-10 10:21

    We're not told that the road passes nearby and almost over the shack houses... Now we're made to believe that the Golf flew into and instead it fell onto the shack.

  • Samuelk Mohlakoana - 2013-03-10 10:24

    Me work news24. I journalism and driver ot WV or exchange Ford BATAM. Hmm News24 is introducing new car makes these days.

  • Simon Knutton - 2013-03-10 10:31

    If the houses in Klipfontein were built to the Municipal rules, the Garage shouldn't have been there! It's in the 16m Provincial Road building line. Let's see how the insurance company handle that!

  • rob.martin.94402343 - 2013-03-10 11:25

    Cut the car news24,cut the crap grammar?

  • Tshepiso Mooketsi - 2013-03-10 11:27

      eugene.trollip - 2013-03-10 11:36

      Tshepiso - your post says it all ...

      Princess Nguni - 2013-03-10 14:14

      People should take pride in their chosen careers. Some of us do not enjoy reading nonsense from people who get paid to write. That does not indicate that we are childish. Similarly, if you made noise about a supermarket selling rotten food, it would not mean you are not grown up. It's about expectations.

  • ANASKA - 2013-03-10 11:27

    Amazing - was it not possible to post a picture of this automobile ON TOP OF A HOUSE?

  • eugene.trollip - 2013-03-10 11:32

    An aborted take-off after drinking Red Bull!

  • HaPPyExpaT - 2013-03-10 11:34

  • Roy Chambal - 2013-03-10 11:38

    News24 you report so much about surveys that happened where about whatever rubbish u feel like but do u ever run survey on your own reporting skills that leave so much to be desired, u break the whole point on the sort with your grade one reporting and wrighting skills - yes we all do make mistakes sometimes but i mean u guys, and we keep complaining but do u care and improve? no!!! i mean you have wrighters and have Editor u mean to tell me you all faster asleep? Eish do survey on your own please and stop cut and pasting use your WV Golf to go after Story when u have it load it in your Ford Batam bring along

  • Regardt Basson - 2013-03-10 11:59
