Fault implies implies strict liability for damages to property, and opens the door for civil claims for financial compensation.https://www.timeslive.co.za/news/so...ted-of-culpable-homicide-after-porsche-crash/
Re - Was a civil claim instituted against him?
I doubt it considering that his dead victim was a woman who relied on a comrade taxi for her transport.
Re - Does he still live in the UAE?
Although I live in Cape Town I am not aware that any part of Grayston Drive in Sandton is a 120km/h zone.
Usually, the law regards any driver who crashes into the back of another vehicle as being at fault.
Culpable homicide is a criminal matter, and requires evidence of negligence. The burden of proof is much higher, since the sentence could involve jail time.
