Runaway cop kills two more in collision

The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) confirmed that two people died in the collision between a runaway cop and a red bakkie, 15 km before Peddie on Friday afternoon.

The 37-year-old Tactical Response Team (TRT) policeman was arrested on the accident scene and will appear in the East London Magistrate court on Monday.

The collision happened a few hours after the cop shot and killed his ex-girlfriend, karate and boxing champion Leighandre Jegels (25) on Voortrekker Road in Wilsonia. He also shot and injured her mother who was travelling with her daughter to Mdantsane for training.

The cop fled the scene in a hired white Mercedes Benz and drove towards Port Elizabeth.
