“Initially, I thought there was an accident in the street, but as soon as I got outside, I saw that the wall and the gate had been destroyed.”

Renee called out to her mother, and when she did not respond, she went inside, where her grandmother informed her that her mother had been busy outside.

Renee’s 64-year-old mother was busy outside the house, making her way to the front where their car had smashed through the wall.

“I rushed out, dreading that she might be under the rubble, but luckily, she was not injured. Was it minutes later, it could have been different as she was on her way to the front where the car smashed through the gate and wall.”

She said videos capturing the moments before the accident later revealed that a Red Renault Sandero driver had reversed through the gate and wall before fleeing the scene.

It was also revealed that the driver reversed and crashed through the gate and wall. This means the back of the Red Renault Sandero should have extensive damage.

“The spare wheel of the Renault was found on the scene, and red paint on the poles.”

Unfortunately, the numberplate of the vehicle is not clear in the videos.

Look at screenshots of the video and the damages:

Renee confirmed that the matter was reported to the police.

“We are busy calculating the damages, and so far, it seems to be about R30 000.”

She furthermore said they wanted the driver to come forward and pay the damages.

“I would also like to know how in the world do you reverse at such a high speed that you crash through a steel gate and wall?”
