Cape Town - A man in his early 30s was arrested for drunken driving

after he knocked down two cyclists in Hermanus on Friday morning.

 

Both

men were taken to the Hermanus Medi-Clinic where they are in stable

condition, the hospital's Margaret Smith told News24.

 

However,

one was being transferred to Vergelegen Medi-Clinic in Somerset West,

Smith said.

 

Superintendent Phindelwa Mavakala said when police

arrived at the scene they found the men lying on the ground and the

suspect and his car were nowhere to be seen.

 

"He only stopped

about a 1km away, and then walked back and admitted to hitting the

cyclists."

 

Upon arrest he was found to have been drunk, said

Mavakala.

 

The suspect is expected to appear in the Hermanus

Magistrate's Court on Monday.

 

Earlier in the week three cyclists

were killed in Oudtshoorn as they practiced for this weekend's Argus

cycle race.
