    Hi All Bikers

    Can anyone please help locate the owner of this Honda Accord ?

    Driver was a young Indian fellow with 2 children and a wife. Accident happened at around 11h00 on 7/8/2016 at entrance area of the "new" Lion Park, where the driver turned directly into the path of the bike. Driver has since "disappeared".

    Rider was seriously injured and his pillion tragically passed on.

    Please message me if you want to remain anonymous

    Thanks
    Buelligan

    I rode past that accident not long after it happened, there were quite a few people stopped already including a number of bikes and a vehicle with strobe lights. I saw quite a few M.O.T.H. patches at the time. Emer-G-Med responded to that accident and as mentioned it happened at the entrance of the lion park, so there were enough people to get details. Emer-G-Med often take photos at the scene.

    What concerns me though is that for such a serious accident, the police should have the details, but it seems they don't and it is not the first time either, not so long ago I was first on the scene of a bike accident just past Scheerpoort and we had the devil's own time trying to get he police to do anything, the first guys on the scene said it wasn't their area, the next batch just sat in their car and finally, after everything was cleared up and we were about to leave the scene, about 3hours later, did a policeman come try get some real details.

    I'm told the details of the driver were obtained from the tow truck driver and have been passed on to the authorities.

    Buelligan, can you confirm?

    Hi guys

    It would appear that the gentleman's details have been obtained. But any corroborating evidence or, even better yet, an eyewitness, would be appreciated

    I'm glad that the drivers details have been obtained. The rider and his pillion are very good friends of mine.
