Ok so let me get this straight. He couldn't see oncoming traffic, yet decided to overtake another vehicle? What kind of driver is this? Deserved jailtime, LOTS.

Terrible - condolences to all.

 

But why was he overtaking if he could not see where he was going?!

Spoke to a Corne Bence - Chairman Southern Cape Cycling- who was on the scene. It happened in front of him. He said the driver disobeyed all traffic rules. He should be charged for murder.Condolences to the families and loved ones of the cyclists that were killed.
