“The driver was drunk, nothing can justify his actions, he must face the wrath of the law,” said one of the community members.

The Lenasia SAPS spokesperson, Captain Hector Netshivhodza, confirmed the incident.

“We can confirm that a 27-year-old has been arrested, and has appeared in court. We are still awaiting the blood test to determine whether the suspect was under the influence of alcohol. We would also like to wish the victim a speedy recovery,” said Captain Netshivhodza.
