Suspect accused of killing Bonteheuwel teen, Tatym Hendricks, granted bail

A 32-year-old driver in connection with the death of a Bonteheuwel teen, has been granted R5 000.

Gershwin Jacobs briefly appeared in the Bishop Lavis Magistrates Court on Wednesday. He’s alleged to be under the influence of alcohol, when he hit 18-year-old Tatum Hendricks and another man with his car on Sunday.

It is believed that the man then lost control of the vehicle and crashed into two properties on Bluegum Avenue.

Ward councillor Angus McKenzie says Hendricks was hit with such force that she landed on the roof of a nearby house. She succumbed to her injuries in hospital, in the early hours of Monday morning.

The case has been postponed until 22 February 2023 for further investigations.

Jacobs bail conditions includes that he should not be in the Bonteheuwel area.
