The search is on for the vehicle that knocked Cape Town resident Christoff Albertyn off his motorbike on Friday, October 11, 2019 and didn’t bother to stop.

While riding along the R27 West Coast Road in the morning between 6.55am and 7.05am on his way into town, a silver-coloured vehicle knocked Albertyn off of his bike and instead of stopping, sped off.

A picture of the car that hit Albertyn, captured by a street camera.

Albertyn says the vehicle looked like a silver Chevrolet Sonic Sedan, but according to the people who helped him obtain the images of the car, it is a silver Yaris.

The vehicle is easy to spot due to the heavy damage to the left side of its rear, which are as a result from hitting Albertyn.

Another view point of the vehicle.

He sustained a number of injuries from the collision, and would like to find the individual who didn’t even bother to check if he was okay after the serious incident took place.

“I’m okay, only fractured wrist, ribs and some roasties, but would like to look this individual in the eye,” says Albertyn.
