Johannesburg - A man was shot dead while driving on the N1 highway in Johannesburg in the early hours of Friday morning, Gauteng police said.

Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said police found the man, who had not yet been identified, just after 02:00 on Friday.

"He had a bullet wound to the head and his car crashed into a concrete wall on the N1 north," said Dlamini.

The incident happened between the Rivonia and Buccleuch interchanges.

"We don't have a motive for the killing yet," said Dlamini.

Eyewitness news reported from the scene several bullet wounds were visible in the man's Nissan Sentra. It was believed the man was shot at from another car.

Johannesburg Metro Police spokesperson, Inspector Edna Mamonyane, said traffic was backed up because of motorists stopping and looking at police clearing up the scene.

"We have a problem with traffic backing up even more," she said just after 08:00.

No other information was immediately available.
