A female biker and an elderly couple travelling from a 90th birthday party suffered serious injuries on Saturday afternoon after a speeding driver on High Road towards Pomona collided with both parties.

According to Gerald Groenewald from SecPros Security, a driver in a white Mercedes first collided with a woman on her motorbike at around 3pm.

“The driver sped away and then collided head-on with the elderly couple, driving a bakkie, about 200 metres down the road,” Groenewald told Kempton Express. “The couple’s vehicle was impacted so hard that it overturned.”

The couple suffered fractured limbs.

Groenewald said the biker had severe trauma to her leg, with multiple fractures to her entire leg and foot. “At one stage, medical services called an air ambulance for support, but they couldn’t wait any longer so she was transported to hospital.”

A passenger in the white Mercedes was treated for head injuries and taken to hospital, but the driver had fled the scene.

According to Groenewald, the driver was still at large on Sunday morning.
