A white C320 Mercedes Benz crashed into an extended RDP residence in ext. 2 late Saturday night on May 18 leaving its residents shocked and homeless
The driver apparently lost control of his steering wheel, turned suddenly between Tanzania and Namibia Roads, and broke the residence fence. The vehicle crushed the two side walls of the home into rubble. Neighbours and bystanders wondered if anyone was hurt, but fortunately all the residents were in the sitting room and no one was in the room that was destroyed.
The driver of the vehicle and his three lady passengers fled the scene before police arrived.
"It’s quite terrifying how life is,” said a passer-by, Yassin “A minute ago I was crossing the road attending to my own matters. Then when I came back through the same route, I see a massive crowed rushing towards the scene. It got me curious." “Once I reached at the scene the only thing I couldn’t figure out was why someone would crash through a residential area and flee the scene without giving any conscious thoughts to the people inside the residence," he said.
Local residents appeared too shocked and terrified to comment.
