A case of attempted murder has been opened following the road rage incident.
A ROW over a parking space on Adelaide Tambo (Kensington Drive) has led to a shootout between two people. Durban North SAPS spokesman, Capt Raymond Deokaran, said the incident occurred just after lunchtime on Thursday.
“The row started when a delivery truck driver got into an altercation with a woman who had parked in a loading bay on Adelaide Tambo Drive. She pulled out a firearm and fired once in his direction.
The driver in turn pulled out his firearm and allegedly fired two shots in her direction, one of the bullets grazed the woman’s leg, injuring her. A case of attempted murder has been opened at the station and the injured woman has been taken to the hospital,” he said.
Deokaran urged residents and motorists to cool the emotional temperature on the roads following the road rage incident.
This is the first incident of road rage this year. In August last year a taxi driver was charged with malicious damage to property after he used his warning triangle to smash a motorist’s side mirror in a road rage incident on the N2 near the Sibaya off-ramp.
