02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

A somewhat confusing story, this.  The victim's parent says that the driver came to their house and brought the recovered bike. Presumably he then identified himself, or at least arrived in a traceable vehicle?

Yet the police say that the driver fled the scene, and they have opened an investigation but have not arrested a suspect?  ???

Lots of strange stories floating about.  The driver apparently also told the dad that the kid rode into him and the dad said he believed him.  Weird!  A blind man could see the damage on the bike was at the back.

Not even close... Bloem is nie Pretoria nie... :biggrin:

Genade tog!  Jy kan iemand in 2016 en 2017 in Pretoria verkrag en dan in 2019 in Bloem in 'n ongeluk wees.   :sip:

Behalwe natuurlik as jy met 'n KLR van Pretoria af Bloem toe ry .....   >:D :snorting:

The reason why I always split lanes even when no one there and stopping at a robot. Stop on the white deviding line at least you can have a chance if the person in his car is on their  cellphone.
Really unnecessary accident :(
All the best to the rider and his recovery.

HFT do you even handle this.. Knowing that a family member or child is broken and beat up due to some twatwaffle, and you also know that your relation is never going to get any justice, just cause the guy is some high up... fsck me...

There seems to have been two hit and run crashes in Bloemfontein on the same day, at similar times.  This ANC organiser who was arrested in De Aar was not arrested for the rear end crash we see in the video.   He was arrested for another crash (also hit and run) for hitting  20-year-old Jeremy Barnard, also on a bike, with his red Isuzu bakkie.
