The driver of the BMW lost control of his vehicle and crashed on the N1 in Century City in an apparent "street race". 

In the video, which was recorded from an overhead bridge by onlookers, the car can be seen changing lanes and losing control soon after. The City of Cape Town has since lashed out following the incident that took place close to the Sable Road off-ramp. This illegal street racing caused a debate around regarding the culture of street racing within the Western Cape.
