2012-10-03 13:01

Johannesburg - Six men were arrested on Wednesday for allegedly killing a motorist during a road rage incident, Gauteng police said.

"The eight men were travelling in a VW when it collided with a Tazz on Saturday. They then took out tools such as spanners and beat up the Tazz driver," said Captain Kay Makhubela.

The 37-year-old motorist suffered severe head injuries and died in hospital on the same day. The incident happened in Zola.

The men, aged between 25 and 29, were arrested in Dobsonville, Zola and Moletsane.

They would appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Thursday to face murder charges.

      richy.rex.77 - 2012-10-03 14:14

      Maybe it was a VW Caravella. The one who started to hit it was the one on the front left. Those one a dangerous they are the 1st ones to start to swear when the drive makes a mistake.

    Give them life, we don't need this useless animals in our society.

      mart.botha - 2012-10-03 13:31

      Spot on about society not needing this quality of individual roaming our streets alu. It is also very illogical that we are prepared to pay for their upkeep and good health in jail when in fact those billions of rands could better be used uplifting the poor law abiding citizens who choose not to do crime yet suffer immeasurebly daily. Put their lights out for good, we do not have space left for everyone. Their right to any Bill of Human Rights terminated when they breached society's Code of Conduct.

  • jomardl - 2012-10-03 13:59

    How stupid must you be that your only means of self expression is physical violence? These thugs should be removed in the most permanent way.

  • gerrit.vanpletzen - 2012-10-03 14:12

    Brutal thugs. I hope they get what they deserve. Probably were drunk as well.

  • nicolas.gombert.16 - 2012-10-03 14:22

    I'm amazed that this kind of thing does not happen more often. Our traffic rules and road signs are for information purposes only, too many people simply ignore them.

    It seems our people behave more like barbarians every day. Instead of becoming more civilized, their practices become progressively more bizarre, brutal and barbaric.
