According to the police, Dartnall’s jaw, arm, ribs and pelvis were broken and her lung punctured when she “fell off her scooter”.

However her mother Merinda Dartnall has poured cold water on the claim saying the severity of the injuries made that contention implausible.

Dartnall was riding along Nelson Mandela Drive between her home in Centurion and the city on 20 March around 13:30.

And her father, André Dartnall said that he had been told that traffic monitoring cameras in the area weren’t working at that time because they were updating.

But said eyewitnesses had told him that four police officers had told people on the scene that they would remove the scooter.

“We still cannot manage to figure out who the police officers were.”

He said the investigating officer would visit the police depot to investigate which vehicle was out on the day.

A case was opened at the Central Police station.

“Police told us no foul play was suspected. They believe she only fell from her scooter,” said André.

Dartnall was riding an orange and black 150cc Jonway Scooter with the registration number DV71JLGP.

Her parents have called on witnesses to come forward to assist the investigation.
