A woman biker was shot and killed on the N1 highway on Friday afternoon after her motorbike broke down. According to Western Cape traffic chief, Kenny Africa, the woman – who has yet to be identified – was attacked and shot in the stomach under the N7 bridge on the busy N1 highway.
Emergency vehicles rushed her to hospital for treatment but she was pronounced dead shortly after arrival. The exact circumstances surrounding the incident are unclear at this stage.
Traffic was backed up for kilometres as the crime scene was cordoned off for further investigation.
A female motorcyclist who had broken down under the Century City bridge on the N1 outbound in Cape Town was shot and killed in a robbery about 2 hours ago. Rush hour traffic! Criminals are more brazen than ever. Carry a firearm, learn how to use it, don't be a statistic!
