A man has been arrested after he knocked down and killed a pedestrian while spinning his car. He also knocked down and injured four other bystanders while attempting to get away from the scene

The incident was reported in Ikageng, North West.

“The man, driving a silver VW Golf, was allegedly spinning his vehicle on Mogolodi Street and collided with a pedestrian. He tried to escape and community members gave chase,” said police spokesman Sergeant Philani Nkwalase.

The driver was allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol.

He knocked down four other bystanders while attempting to get away from the scene.

The four were taken to hospital for treatment.

The man was later arrested and charged with culpable homicide.

He will appear in the Potchefstroom Magistrates’ Court soon.

The Mayans never said it would be the 'end of the world'. It is simply the end of an age that the Mayans predicted. There were any number of 'ages' that they worked on. It has to do with star alignment, not predictions.

I don't think the christians will be very pleased with you calling Jesus 'demon possessed' when he turned all that water into wine or when he gave wine at the last supper

This is all false reporting
-He is my friend, He wasn’t spinning he tried to dodge the bumper then he knocked someone with a mirror and while trying to help the guy the morons attacked him and almost killed him it wouldn’t have been such a big thing had they just stayed away. I would have also ran the whole bunch...yes he was wrong but it wasn’t such a big thing they made it a big thing by attacking him, they probably tried to stop the car with their bodies morons.....

The-Vince, and here I thought the Mayans were a peaceful nation who only sacrificed blood, not lives, as opposed to the more aggressive Aztecs, and also that their descendants are still alive and well today, much the same as Shaka's descendants. i always just thought maybe their calendar stopped because they simply ran out of writing space.

SHredder. I agree. I see people in my area spinning cars and it has to be the most idiotic pastime.
