While a motorist faces charges of reckless and negligent driving after ploughing his BMW through a crowd of pupils outside a Johannesburg school, he has opened up a case of his own – that of malicious damage to property.
According to the police, the motorist's vehicle sustained "a lot of damage" after pupils jumped on his bonnet.
"According to our investigations, the pupils who were gathered outside as shown in the video, were throwing water bombs, eggs and stones at one another. Some students jumped on the motorist's bonnet, causing a lot of damage to his vehicle," police spokesperson Captain Balan Muthan said.
He added that the motorist, who had a 10-year-old child with him at the time, then reversed into a vehicle behind him and sped off, ploughing through the pupils gathered in the street.
