PRETORIA - Tshwane metro police were yet to confirm whether a blue light vehicle was involved in an accident on Thursday which resulted in the closure of the N1 south near the Rigel off-ramp for several hours.

Four people were injured in the accident which involved two vehicles.

The highway has since been reopened.

Motorists who drove past earlier said it looked like one of the cars was a blue light vehicle.

"There were two vehicles involved. One white and one black one with lights on top," one motorist said.

Tshwane metro police spokesperson Console Tleane said he had no details of the vehicles involved.

"I can only confirm that the road was reopened."
