“We have still not made any breakthrough,” said police spokesperson Captain Jan Sepato.

Police found that the surveillance camera near the scene was not functioning on the day of the accident, while the camera before the scene was facing the opposite direction.

“As a result, we could trace the cars that travelled near where the incident took place,” he said.

A case of culpable homicide is being investigated.

Sepato has urged anyone with information to contact Constable Michael Mashilo on 076 249 8733 or the station’s branch commander on 082 822 8218.
