Pretoria – Johannesburg metro police officers Simphiwe Msimanga and Neo Motseke were injured when a vehicle hit their service BMW at the scene of another accident.

Metro police spokesperson Xolani Fihla said the injured officers were from the municipal police service’s Freeway Patrol Unit.

“The officers were attending an accident on the N3 South and London Road in Linbro Park early Sunday morning… when a silver Citroën which was allegedly travelling in the emergency lane crashed into the rear of the white JMPD Freeway Patrol BMW which was stationary,” said Fihla.

“The BMW hit a white Kia Rio which was also stationary due to an earlier accident that the officers were attending.”

There was no one in the Kia at the time of the second accident.
