Gruesome death: Man knocked over by taxi

The sister of a man who was killed is consoled by police officials and fire and rescue members.

Family members of a 27-year old man from Ratanda cried hysterically on the scene where their brother was knocked over and killed by a taxi on the R23 (Balfour Road).

 

The family was walking near the Heidelberg Correctional Services around 07:30 this morning when a taxi overtook a Ford Bantam and smashed into the pedestrians.

According to Captain Thivhulawi Tshilate the taxi also hit the bakkie before coming to a standstill. The man’s wife was not seriously injured, but the man was certified dead on the scene.

Police are investigating a case of culpable homicide.
