Earlier this week, a video was shared on social media which showed a motorist ploughing through school kids.
A video has gone viral on social media which showed a motorist ramming his car into a crowd of high school pupils.
Briefly.co.za learned the video was shared on Twitter on 18 September, and reportedly took place at the Allen Glen High School in Roodepoort.
According to Jacaranda FM, the SAPS has opened an investigation into the matter and hope to arrest the culprit soon.
Honeydew Police spokesperson Balan Muthan said learners were barricading the road outside the school on Tuesday when the motorist lost his cool and decided to cut through them.
The footage was shared by @crimeairnetwork, with the caption: "MATRIC 40 DAYS GONE WRONG : ALLENS NEK. ROODEPOORT. JHB. GP."
The video sparked quite the debate on social media, with tweeps giving their two cents on the incident, and school incidents in general.
Social media user @nowdaysboys wrote, "I blame social media. Now school violence is becoming popular just like looting, racist attacks, gangs etc. It all starts with platforms like this posting videos of this nature then it catches on to other parts of the country."
Tonsi, who goes by the Twitter handle @leezo_buya, commented: "lol I'm so sorry to say but these videos are constantly coming from the non fee paying schools. The high school learners from St. John's college, Hilton college, Crawford college must be so hard at work preparing to go to Harvard and Michigan institute of technology."
