The driver attempted to flee from a second accident scene, where he was caught.

A man was caught in the east of Pretoria on Wednesday after causing havoc on the roads in Ashlea Gardens, Rekord East reports.

Orange Fox Security said in a statement that they received a call about a vehicle that had fled an accident scene on Wednesday afternoon.

“The vehicle attempted to run over a Metro police official who stopped to assist with the accident,” stated the security group.

“A member of the public saw the driver of the vehicle speeding from the scene and followed the vehicle.”
