Shock as coffin carrying body crashes out of vehicle, blocks traffic

Shock as coffin carrying body crashes out of the vehicle, blocks traffic. It was not clear whether the undertaker forgot to lock the door of the vehicle or whether it broke. In a bizarre incident, a coffin was flung out of a moving funeral hearse as the vehicle transported the deceased to Port Elizabeth in South Africa.

Traffic came to a halt as horrified motorists didn’t want to crash into the coffin. The two men scrambled to pick the coffin up from the road before loading it back onto the hearse. When SA newspaper the Daily Sun called Vantyi and Vantyi Funeral Undertaker, a woman who would only identify herself as Ntombikayise said:


“It was just an accident. The body didn’t sustain any injuries from the fall. We’re investigating what could have led to the coffin falling out. The Funeral Industry Regulatory Authority’s Johan Rousseau said because there were no guidelines for the industry, it led to incidents like these.

“All hearses must have stoppers so when the vehicle starts, the coffin does not move backwards. It looks like the door was broken and there was nothing to stop the coffin,” he said.
