A 36 year old police officer [Sophie Gwebu] from Pretoria was driving a police car this morning when she caused a pile up of about six cars when she crashed into the back of a taxi carrying fifteen people.
Although she was in the driver’s seat, it was actually her male co-worker constable Frank Nksoi who was holding the wheel while she tidied herself up down below.
In case you’re wondering just why Gwebu was trimming her hedge, she explained that she was planning to meet someone later today and she wanted to be “ready for the visit”.
She was charged for reckless driving and she faces a possible year in jail if found guilty. The occupants of the other vehicle were treated for minor injuries. The SAPS is still investigating.
