Bay shop worker pinned between bakkie, counter

Lee-Anne Butler

A BAKKIE ploughed into a Port Elizabeth shop yesterday, seriously injuring an employee who was crushed between the cashier’s desk and the vehicle.

And in a true show of heroism, an 18-year-old boy saved his girlfriend’s life and suffered a fractured leg after he shoved her out of the path of a speeding taxi which then collided with the bakkie, causing it to careen out of control in North End.

The trapped Electric Express employee, stock clerk Jeffrey Krune, 53, was freed by about 10 people who heaved the bakkie away from him.

He was admitted to Livingstone Hospital.

Six other people were injured and several were treated for shock, including the bakkie driver.
