Ambulance driver arrested for reckless driving

A driver and owner of a private ambulance company are set to appear in court on reckless driving and fraud charges.

This comes after members of the National Traffic Police stopped an ambulance that was allegedly driving recklessly on R562 in Olifantsfontein, Gauteng.

Traffic officer also discovered that the driver did not have a professional driving permit.

The driver failed to stop when instructed to and other traffic officers had to be called before he was eventually handcuffed.

The owner of the ambulance was also arrested when he arrived at the police station to check on the driver.

He will be charged with fraud because the operator’s permit displayed on the vehicle was invalid.

Both the driver and owner have been detained at Olifantsfontein police station and are expected to appear in court on Monday.
