Two cars had reportedly been dicing in the narrow suburban streets of Arboretum in Richards Bay, KZN.

The Zululand Observer reports that the dicing came to a head when a car smashed through a family’s boundary wall and plunged into their swimming pool last night as they were preparing for an early bedtime.

The loud crash also saw their neighbours pour from their houses, in time to witness a second vehicle – an Audi – speed from the scene.

The two cars had reportedly been dicing in the narrow street, which has a number of traffic calming humps.

Police were soon on the scene and the sole young male occupant of the Hyundai Getz, who was uninjured, was accompanied to the Richards Bay Police Station.

While extensive damage was caused to the property, no occupants were injured.
