Several vehicles were damaged in a massive pile-up in Umhlanga 3 days ago after a truck ploughed through morning traffic. As reported by EWN, the 22-year-old tipper truck driver, Sithulile Zulu, received charges of reckless and negligent driving and failure to observe the duties of a driver after the accident. In addition, he is facing charges linked to over 40 vehicle accidents that resulted in significant car damage.
Zulu, who initially fled the accident scene, handed himself over to the police on Monday night. The court said it still needed to verify his documents, including his driver’s license. State prosecutor Seema Reddy stated that the State still had to verify Zulu’s home address.
“At this stage, your worship, the accused’s address has not been verified. He has provided an address outside the Durban area, which the investigating officers need to verify. Your worship, the profiling of the accused has not been done.”
The matter will return to court next week Wednesday for bail proceedings.
