Cape Town - A Macassar man is in an induced coma at Vincent Pallotti Hospital after he was critically injured when a rock was flung through his car’s windscreen on the N2.
Julius Jantjies, 27, and his work colleague, Garth Vermeulen, 22, were on their way to the city when the attack happened just before the R300 off-ramp on Wednesday.
Vermeulen, who spoke on behalf of Jantjies’ family, said that as they travelled he and Jantjies spotted a man in the middle of the road.
“We thought it was just another guy waiting for us to drive past so he could run over the road, but as we came closer to him we saw he had a big rock in his hand. As we came past him he threw the rock, the size of a sweet melon, through the front window,” Vermeulen said.
