Motorist fears for his and his family’s lives during Secunda road rage incident

Three men broke the door to the security office.

A security guard was hospitalised after he was assaulted in what began as a road rage but ended in violence.

A motorist was driving from a parking lot after he had supper with his family at a local restaurant.

“I saw a car reversing, but when it stopped, and drove on.

“When I was about to approach the robots near BMW garage, I saw a car flashing lights for me and I stopped.

“I thought I knew the people,” said the motorist.

“The man in the other car wanted to know whether I could not see that he was reversing.

“I told him I had the right of way and got into my car as he was beginning to threaten me.”

The chase

The other car raced after him.

His fiancé and eight-month-old baby were in the car.

The motorist wanted to turn off at Graceland to go to eMbalenhle, but realised he needed protection and drove to Sasol.

The two cars entered the Sasol premises where they continued to chase each other until they returned to the security gate.

The motorist stopped and locked himself and his family inside the security office.

The other driver and his two passengers got out of their car, damaged the door of the security office and demanded the man come out.

The three men also damaged the man’s car and called him names at the same time.

“They were swearing at me, calling me a k****r and said all black people must die,” said the motorist.

He was terrified for his and his family’s lives.

The security guard was trying to calm the situation, but was allegedly beaten up by the three men and was admitted to hospital.

W/O Thulani Gamede from Secunda Police Station confirmed the three men were arrested and were released on bail.

They will appear in the Secunda Magistrate’s Court on Friday, 14 July.
