BREAKING NEWS: Female pedestrian sustains life-threatening injuries in high-speed police chase

A female pedestrian's life is hanging in the balance after she was struck by two vehicles in a high speed chase following a crime incident at the former Rex Cafe.

The woman was struck so violently that one of her legs were partially amputated.

The incident occurred around 09:45 on the busy corner of Cowen Ntuli- and Lilian Ngoyi Drive.

Details remain sketchy but it is understood that the BMW responsible for the crash was earlier involved in a crime incident preceding the collision.

According to eye-witnesses at the scene, the fleeing BMW with two occupants struck a BMW SUV in the crossing at the busy McDonald’s intersection.

Both cars lost control, spun and both then struck the unknown woman crossing the street. The fleeing BMW then crashed into Romans Pizza’s perimeter wall and came to a halt in Romans Pizzas parking area.

One of the two suspects succeeded in fleeing the horrible scene, while the other was arrested. The woman was immediately taken to hospital with life threatening injuries.
