Ganjora down...........
« on: July 11, 2019, 08:12:20 am »
Dave was on his new 690 motard yesterday afternoon when he was hit by a car on the corner of William Nicol and Peter Place.

He's got multiple injuries and is currently in ICU.

Dont have a lot of info yet, but will post later in the day, after I've spoken to his wife again.

Given the location, I assume he is in the Sandton Mediclinic?
