Information from the scene suggests the collision occurred when the driver of a grey coloured Jeep was hit by a motorbike while turning right from De Bron Road into Vredekloof Road. 

"The driver of the motorbike, which was travelling straight [down De Bron Road] in the direction of Durbanville, allegedly hit the left backside of the Jeep. 

"The driver of the motorbike was already deceased when emergency services and police arrived on the scene. His identity is still unknown. 

"The 51-year-old driver of the Jeep was taken to the hospital for observation," says Crous. 

Crous says the investigation is ongoing. 

Police were still present at the time of TygerBurger's arrival at the scene.
