Boksburg - A cyclist was killed after

being struck by a car in Boksburg on Saturday, Ekurhuleni metro police

said.

 

Metro police spokesperson Kobeli Mokheseng said the

accident occurred at around 05:00 at the corners Rondebult and Leeupoort

roads in Boksburg.

His body was found by a metro police officer

on the side of the road and his bicycle a few metres away.

The

man was believe to be in his 50's.

Although the cause of the

accident was not clear, preliminary investigations revealed that the man

was struck by a car from behind.

The driver of the car fled

after the accident.

A case of culpable homicide has since been

opened.

"We are appealing to cyclist and to people jogging,

always ride or run in numbers where it is safe to do so when

exercising," said Mokeseng.

Just read this on new24. My condolences.

 

<CYNICISM>

I note the report says cyclists should ride in a group. If this poor guy was in a group, I wonder how many would have been killed then?

Heard here at work(Telkom)that a guy that worked for Telkom was run over by a car yesterday while cycling his name was Jannie Coetzer . So it must be the same story as above

I hate to say it but, I hope the driver meets a bridge....fast.

 

 

 

It's not speed that kills, it's the idiot behind the steering wheel.

 

 

 

My condolences to his family. May they be at peace during this awful time.

Tragic, and its not like this road is narrow, its dual lane with wide yellow line. Hope they catch whoever was responsible.
