The traffic police officers in Olifantsfontein have detained a private ambulance driver. He is suspected of reckless and negligent driving, plus driving the emergency vehicle without a professional driving permit.
“The driver attracted the attention [of] traffic officers [after] the ambulance was observed cutting in front of traffic dangerously. The driver failed to stop when instructed to do so, and other traffic officers had to be called before he was eventually handcuffed.”
According to Road Traffic Management Corporation spokesperson Simon Zwane, the owner of the ambulance was arrested as well. He was detained after he had arrived at the police station. He will face fraud charges.
The suspects are expected to appear in court.
