The accident happened on the intersection of the Jubelfeestlaan and the Belgicalaan. A man and a woman died when another car crashed into the side of their vehicle. Detectives believe that the car that caused the accident failed to stop at red.
The 26-year-old woman who has now come forward, her 5-year-old child and her former partner absconded after the accident. The woman walked into a police station on Thursday afternoon saying that she was at the wheel.
The woman's account conflicts with that of eyewitnesses who maintain that they saw a man step out of the driver's seat after the accident. Police are looking for the woman's former partner. A second person has been detained, but it's unclear whether this is the woman's missing ex-partner.
