South Africa, Cape Town – In a video clip, a Toyota Avanza can be seen speeding down Stock Road, between Rochester and Govan Mbeki roads, in Philippi East on Sunday morning before veering off course.

The car ploughs into four people, who were seriously injured – some of whom appeared to have returned from shopping – and a baby on the pavement next to a parked car.

The driver of the parked car then jumps out of the car to witness the devastation. The Avanza comes to a stop after having hit three cars and forcing other pedestrians to scatter.

Western Cape police spokesperson Captain FC van Wyk said on Monday: ’’A 27-year-old man was arrested for culpable homicide and drunken driving after his vehicle collided into other vehicles and a baby was fatally injured while four pedestrians were seriously injured.

’’The accident occurred in Stock Road, Philippi East. The suspect will appear in court once charged.’’

On Sunday, November 22, five pedestrians were knocked down at Lamont Location, near Bafanaas tuck shop in Margate.

According to police, the driver had lost control of his vehicle and collided with a fence, a shop and five pedestrians.

Three people who were in the vehicle fled on foot towards Sunduza. It’s believed the vehicle had been stolen in Ramsgate the previous evening.
