Speeding Audi punts Polo into barrier

Johannesburg - Two men were arrested for alleged drunken and reckless driving on Sunday.

Johannesburg metro police Inspector Edna Mamonyane said the men's Audi A4 was stopped by officers on the N1 driving at 199km/h in a 120km/h zone.

The men then sped off and metro police gave chase.

On the N1, N12 split near Diepsloot, the Audi driver manoeuvred between vehicles, hitting a white Volkswagen Polo which was in the right-hand lane.

The Polo's driver then lost control, with the car rolling several times and landing on the barricade.

A woman passenger in the Polo sustained serious injuries but the driver was not injured. The two men in the Audi were also not injured.

Mamonyane said: “They refused to tell the officers who was driving. They were both drunk.”

The men, aged 32 and 22, were expected to appear in court soon.
