By: Golden Nkululeko Ngubane
The driver of a car lost control and crashed into another vehicle that was in the parking lot on Sunday at the South Beach, Hospital Road.
The driver of the black BMW 3.2.5i was spinning the car when he crashed into the Toyota Quantum that was in parking lot.
The owner of the car that was hit, Sandile Mbhele said, “He was spinning the car and that’s what resulted into the cars crashing and I want him to pay.”
Mbhele who makes about R1000 a day, said that he wants compensation. “I can’t afford to lose money. He must pay me R1000 for every day since it’s going to take five days to fix the car. I will be losing R5000,” explained
Mbhele. He added that “this was unnecessary as he wanted to impress the UKZN students who were cheering for him in their residence.”
Police officer Bongiwe Madlala said, “We need to find proof first that the reason of the crash is the result of him spinning the car then we can put him to jail, because when spinning a car in a busy street like this one anything can happen. He was lucky no one died or got injured.”
Madlala said that they took a statement from the accused. “He denied spinning the car. He said the brakes stopped working then the car went to crash onto the other car. All I can say now is that we will question him until we find proof which will decide where he stands.”
Brad Williams, the driver who crashed, agreed to pay R1000 per day to the owner of the vehicle that he crashed into. Both drivers went to the police station to make an affidavit.
