Kuils River: High-speed chase ends in crash, 2 suspected hijackers killed

Two suspected hijackers were killed when they crashed their vehicle during a high speed chase in Kuils River on Thursday morning.

A Flying Squad patrol vehicle spotted a suspicious vehicle with three male occupants in Van Riebeeck Road which then led to a high speed chase said Western Cape police spokesperson Colonel Andrè Traut.

The suspects’ white Toyota Etios collided with a private vehicle in their attempt to evade arrest.

A third occupant in the car, a 40-year-old man, sustained injuries and was transported to hospital.

Fortunately the driver of the private vehicle was not injured during the collision.

The suspect is being detained in hospital for the possession of a 9mm pistol allegedly stolen in 2016 in East London, and the possession of a stolen vehicle which was allegedly hijacked in Fish Hoek in August 2020.

His alleged accomplices have yet to be identified.
