An accident on the corner of Paardekraal Road and Luipaard Street around noon yesterday, near the CBD claimed the life of a young man.

17-year-old Pieter-Schalk Grobbelaar, a pupil from Hoërskool Noordheuwel, was riding his motorcycle when he was hit by a bakkie, leaving him seriously injured.

Traffic piled up as Sector 4 and 5’s Community Policing Forum (CPF) members closed the road to make way for an emergency helicopter landing.
