An accident occurred between two vehicles, a taxi and an Audi collided during the day at Korsten in Gqeberha yesterday which led to a heated fury, pun intended.

According to Police reports, there was a collision between the above mentioned vehicles around 2pm. It is also said that the driver of the taxi got out of his vehicle and started attacking the Audi driver. It was then when store owners went to help the Audi driver.

The driver of the Audi got into his car and drove a short distance and stopped his car. It was there when attacks came to blows as a group of taxi drivers attacked the Audi driver and set his car alight.

A vengeance between the store owners and the taxi drivers led to 8 taxis being torched, 2 taxis demolished including a civilian’s car.

All the taxis set alight were parked at a taxi rank. No persons were harmed during the incident and no arrests have been made yet. The police have opened a case of public violence.

The situation is still distasteful but the police are keeping a sharp eye at the place where the incident occurred, until things begin to settle.
