One of two BMWs that both struck the woman in the congested Cowen Ntuli- and Lilian Ngoyi crossing around 09:45 this morning, was allegedly involved in a crime incident at the former Rex Cafe before the chase ensued.
The BMW skipped the red robot on the busy T-junction colliding with another BMW. Both cars spun out of control and struck the woman who was crossing the street according to eye witnesses.
The deceased lady was struck so violently that one of her legs were amputated.
Police are combing the scene for forensic evidence after one of the two suspects was apprehended. The other got away.
The woman sadly passed away before the emergency helicopter dispatched to fly her for treatment could reach Middelburg
