JMPD Officer In Hospital After Being Hit By A Car In Orange Farm

A member of the Jersey Meadows Police Department was brought to the hospital for treatment after being struck by a vehicle on Orange Farm’s Golden Highway.

Officer Aubrey Mufundhisi Muhuvuza of the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) was struck by a silver-gray Mitsubishi Colt bakkie at the intersection of Golden Highway and Oakmere in the community of Orange Farm early on the morning of Sunday, October 23, 2022.

After striking the police officer with their vehicle, the driver of the bakkie kept driving away from the scene.

The officers who were already present in the vicinity began to pursue the bakkie. During the search, the abandoned bakkie was discovered along Mbatha Street in Orange Farm Extension 1, but the driver could not be located.

After the incident, paramedics were dispatched to the scene, and as soon as they arrived, they notified the other cops that Officer Muhuvuza had just been involved in a life-threatening emergency. Officer Muhuvuza had recently been involved in a circumstance where his life was in grave danger.

Officer Muhuvuza was had to be transported by helicopter to the medical center in Milpark. Even though he fractured his left leg and was transferred to the hospital ward for observation, his condition is reported to be stable at this moment.

For further investigation, the Orange Farm SAPS will launch a case of reckless and negligent driving, failure to stop at the accident scene, and hit-and-run. The Mitsubishi Colt bakkie was seized by the police.

The JMPD’s leadership wishes Officer Muhuvuza a swift recovery and pledges to exhaust every conceivable lead in their search for the negligent motorist responsible for this disaster.
