Family burns to death in horror crash after car bursts into flames. The Zimbabwean family was in a Porsche Cayenne which burst into flames and all four occupants were burnt beyond recognition. IOL reports that the identification took long because the Porsche Cayenne had no number plates on the car, which made it difficult for authorities.
In a horrific development, a Zimbabwean family of four were part of the 8 people who were killed in a horror collision between two SUVs on the N11 in Ladysmith, near Modelkloof, at the weekend. According to ZBC, the family has since been identified as
Tonderai Godfrey Sithole (38) – Driver
Faith Sithole (36) – Wife
Shalom Sithole (10)– Female child
Shekinah Sithole (5) – Female child
Speaking about the accident, Transport, Community Safety and Liaison MEC Bheki Ntuli said I’m deeply saddened at the continued loss of lives. Losing an entire family in just one accident is such a great tragedy. In this particular accident, we have lost two families.
We once again extend our heartfelt condolences to the families of the deceased and our officials will continue supporting the families as they make arrangements to bury their loved ones.
What is most worrying is that it seems as though motorists are not adhering to our road rules and speed limits, which in the main is leading to these accidents.
