A man was shot dead and his friend was wounded when they were shot at after stopping at an apparent accident scene on the N14

highway near Diepsloot, Beeld reported on Monday.

Chris Conradie, 23, and two of his friends were travelling between Krugersdorp and Pretoria on Friday night.

They stopped at the R511 exit after seeing an obstruction in the road and a BMW with flashing lights, the newspaper reported.

Conradie got out the car and walked towards the scene to check for injured people.

His friends heard a gunshot and saw Conradie running back towards the car. They pushed him in and drove away.

Two bullets hit Conradie in the chest, another bullet hit his friend in the leg.

They phoned the police while driving to the Unitas Hospital in Pretoria. Conradie was declared dead on arrival.

He and his wounded friend both worked at a mine in Zambia. They were on holiday in South Africa and were to have flown back on Tuesday. - Sapa
