real sad. this from sapa's website:


A young man on a bicycle was killed when a truck rode over him in Wadeville on Thursday afternoon, Ekurhuleni metro police said.
Inspector Jimmy Maboko said a truck was turning into Swart Street off Guthrie Road around 3.30pm, as a bicycle carrying the young man, between 19 and 20, and a 16-year-old was travelling behind it.
The two on the bicycle did not realise the truck was turning and crashed into the side of the vehicle.
The older boy fell under the truck and was killed instantly. The younger boy, a pupil at Oost Rand Hoerskool in Boksburg, sustained head injuries.
He was taken to OR Tambo Memorial Hospital in Boksburg and is in a stable condition.
A case of culpable homicide was opened, Maboko said. - Sapa

As hulle langs/agter die voertuig gery het en nie bewus was wat die bestuurder gaan doen nie, kan mens nie eintlik die vragmotorbestuurder kwalik neem nie. As 'n motor van agter af in 'n ander motor vasry is dit suiwer sy skuld - dieselfde geld as die motor gedraai het en die ander motor ry in sy kant vas. Dit klink of die bestuurder nie die fietse gesien het nie. Dis nie asof hy daarop uit was om die outjies raak te ry nie.

Yes sad to hear, a 16 year old boy was also killed on Atlas road on Tuesday after being hit by a car.


To add my 2 cents I would also just like to say to those 2 plonkers riding their MTB's on North Rand Road this morning at 6am - You FU$#ING Idiots!!!


I almost took both of them out because they jumped the red robot!!!
