Shortly before 5pm on Tuesday, July 25, the elderly man had been filling a container with fuel when a man driving a white Corsa bakkie pulled in to the garage.

“The driver was abusive towards the attendants. The elderly man asked him to refrain from swearing as there were women around,” said Scottburgh SAPS communications officer, Captain Vincent Pandarum.

The man then apparently returned to his bakkie and drove into the elderly man, who fell against a nearby vehicle.

The driver  fled the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Warrant Officer Salomie Pillay at 039 9781900 urgently.
