Speaking to TMG Entertainment, police confirmed that one of the pedestrians was declared dead on the scene and the other was taken to hospital in a critical condition.

Mabuza told TMG that a charge of culpable homicide is being investigated, as per protocol in such incidents.

Speaking to Daily Sun, Ray said it had left him feeling "saddened and heartbroken". "It is terrible that this has happened and I don't feel good about it at all. There should at least have been road signs to indicate a pedestrian crossing so motorists can drive more carefully, but there were none,".
