Sergeant Nicolene Findlay of the Modimolle SAPS was recovering well in hospital following a road accident along the N1 North last Thursday, 11 January.

Findlay and her colleague, Constable Simon Mahlangu, were hospitalised after their official vehicle collided with a bus.

Accoding to Modimolle SAPS Station Commissioner, Colonel Loikie Harmse, Findlay was this week still recuperating at the local FH Odendaal Hospital.

Mahlangu has since returned to work.

The accident, according to the police at the time, occurred when a bus allegedly collided with the state vehicle from behind, at about 3pm on the day in question.

It was alleged the two officers were on their way back from the scene of another accident on their way to Modimolle, when the accident occurred. 

Investigations into a case of alleged reckless and negligent driving continue.
