Johannesburg - The case against a Hummer driver found guilty of culpable homicide after crashing into three motorcyclists, killing two and injuring one, was expected to continue in the Pretoria North District Court on Thursday.
Zambian national Indi Himalindi Chiyabu, 31, was found guilty on two charges of culpable homicide and another for leaving the scene of an accident and failing to report it.
He crashed into the motorcyclists on Rachel de Beer Road in Pretoria in October 2010.
Two of the motorcycles caught fire after the collision.
Pieter Coetzee and JP Kruger, who were members of the Christian Motorcyclists Association SA, died at the scene.
Coetzee's son, Pieter Junior, was seriously injured, losing a leg in the accident.
In previous proceedings, Magistrate Ben van Schalkwyk said in his opinion, the motorcyclists could not have avoided the Hummer and Chiyabu was entirely responsible for the crash. - Sapa
