In two different car accidents died two policemen from The South Africa Police Service. These unhappy crashes happened on the previous weekend.
“A male constable was knocked down and succumbed to [his] injuries. The member was declared dead on the scene. A male suspect, who was allegedly intoxicated at the time, was arrested for culpable homicide and for driving under the influence of alcohol.”
The second crash happened on the R21 near Olifantsfontein. Both the driver and the passenger, one of whom had since been confirmed as a 38-year-old warrant officer stationed at the SAPS national head office, were declared dead on the scene, Peters said.
“So these deaths are really sad and we thus urge the public to observe and respect traffic laws and rather find alternative means of transport after indulging in alcohol or drugs,” Masha said.
