EMER-G-MED Paramedics attended this accident scene.
A suspect was killed and two other people were injured when gunmen opened fire on police who were chasing after them on the corner of William Nicol Drive and Republic Road yesterday.
Two of the suspects are in hospital under police guard while their accomplice is still on the run.
It is understood that Stephan Brent, from Paulshof in northern Johannesburg, was on his way to fetch his son from school when he was knocked over.
The police’s Tsekiso Mofokeng says the suspects’ vehicle collided with another car and then overturned while they were being pursued by officers.
“When the suspects’ vehicle collided with one car, we suspect that that car collided with other cars, including the motorbike.”
Brent’s long-time friend Lita Jacobsen says she’s devastated.
"My friend… we do business together… we’re business associates and long-time friends."
The father of one was airlifted to hospital in a critical condition yesterday. He succumbed to his injuries last night.
