“Currently, the affected area has been cordoned off for safety reasons. The main priority at this stage is to ensure the area is structurally safe to recover the vehicle, and then the necessary assessment of the area can be done to determine the cause of the incident, among which is a sewer collapse.

“SAPS as well as the City’s Law Enforcement were also called to the site,” Badroodien said.

He also urged residents to stay away from the site for safety reasons.

“This request applies while the officials are recovering the vehicle and conducting the assessment, as well as throughout the period when the remedial work is being done.
