A police van driver might be in serious trouble after allegedly killing a child in a hit-and-run in Gauteng on Thursday.
According to a report circulated on social media, a 13-year-old child was killed in KwaThema on the East Rand. According to reports the police van did not stop to take responsibility which made the accident a hit-and-run.
The girl was with her 7-year-old brother, whom she pushed away to save his life.
It is further said that witnesses of the grim event, which happened in broad daylight around 14:20, quickly followed the police van before capturing its registration plate.
The driver of the police van is believed to be a female driver who was accompanied by an ununiformed male.
“We are aware. We learnt about it last night (Thursday) when members of the public reported it to us on social media,” IPID spokesperson Grace Langa confirmed.
“Indeed it happened. We are starting to investigate the matter today (Friday),” Langa said.
“We will ensure justice for the family,” Langa said.
