PRETORIA - The Jaguar XF driver who crashed into a house in Lyttelton on Sunday morning is still free. 

Pretoria police said on Tuesday: "By late Monday no arrests have been made regarding the incident."

The Star newspaper report on Tuesday 15, 2013 that the vehicle belonged to a government employee working in intelligence. Police said, perhaps pointlessly: "Even if it was [true] we will not disclose that information."


According to the news report, the driver fled, leaving behind the car and a government employee ID tag with the name of LN Makamu. An empty whisky bottle and several beer bottles were in the Jaguar.

The car was apparently driven for about 12km with one tyre shredded.

Ministry of State Security spokesman Brian Dube said he was not aware of the incident or of anyone in the department driving a Jaguar.

"Police have access to eNatis and can easily identify the owner and trace him or her. Police should follow investigation procedures and bring the perpetrator to book."

A resident of the house, Zee Pieterse, said the impact of the crash into the gate was so severe that it pushed two cars parked in front of the house into the garage wall.

    Bet the police would've had the guy by now if there was no government employee ID tag in the car

    Owner will probably just report the car stolen and say they were not driving. Then proceed to thank the police for recovering said vehicle.
