Traffic officer knocked over by speeding car


A traffic officer  was knocked over by a speeding  vehicle while he was controlling traffic congestion in Amalinda main road this morning.

The incident happened at about 8am between CTM and Frere Hospital.

BCM spokeswoman Bathandwa Diamond said the accident was not a hit-and-run.

“The accident was caused by a driver who collided into the back of the stationary vehicle and in turn causing the stationary vehicle to knock the officer over.”

She said the officer was in a stable condition  but in a lot of pain and has been taken for X-rays.

“A case of reckless and negligent driving was opened at the Cambridge Police Station when a traffic officer was knocked over by a vehicle while doing point duty,” she said.
