The driver of a vehicle that crashed into that of Top Billing presenter Simbarashe “Simba” Mhere would be charged with culpable homicide, Johannesburg metro police said.

The accident happened along William Nicol Drive after 5am today, said spokesperson Superintendent Edna Mamonyane.

“A VW Polo that had got off the N1 in Fourways, crossed over the middle island and crashed into Simba’s side. Simba was driving and the strong impact killed Simba and a passenger sitting upfront,” said Mamonyane.

Mhere and one passenger died on the scene.

A third passenger in the car and the Polo driver were taken to hospital.
