  • Two people were killed in Kuils River, Cape Town, when a police chase ended in a crash.
  • The third person in the vehicle was arrested for possession of a gun stolen in Gqeberha in 2016.
  • The vehicle the three were in was reported stolen in Fish Hoek last year.

Two suspects died after a high-speed police chase in Kuils River, Cape Town, on Thursday.

Police spokesperson Colonel Andrè Traut said the Flying Squad's suspicions were raised on Thursday by a white Toyota Etios, which had been reported stolen in Fish Hoek last August.

The chase from Riebeeck Street came to a crashing halt when the Etios crashed into a private vehicle.

"The driver and one of the passengers of the Etios succumbed to death while the third occupant, a 40-year-old man sustained injuries," said Traut.

The third man was taken to hospital and arrested in connection with the alleged possession of a 9mm pistol stolen in Gqeberha in 2016.

The driver of the private vehicle was not injured during the crash.
