Car accident damages resident's wall.
A car crashed and was overturned after it hit a Toyota Tazz on the corner of Beaufort and Hill Street in Grahamstown on Thursday between 20:00 and 20:30.
The Ford Lazer collided with the Toyota Tazz and hit a resident's wall before overturning. The driver of the Toyota immediately fled the scene.
"He crawled out and tried to run and hide near the garage," said Terry Horner, the owner of the house with the damaged wall.
He reported that he saw the driver of the Ford Lazer, who appeared to be intoxicated, leave his car and attempt to hide from nearby Hi-Tech security guards who has witnessed the accident.
It appeared that the driver had severely hurt his head. Horner and his wife were having supper when the balcony of their house was struck.
There were no other passengers reported to be in the badly damaged Lazer.
Police and an ambulance were alerted and the driver of the Lazer was rushed to Settler's Hospital.
