FOUR people including an off-duty police officer were killed in a head-on collision on Georgedale Road in Cato Ridge on Thursday night.

Constable Sithembiso Dlamini (29), stationed at Camperdown, died along with his passenger and both occupants of the other car.

It is believed that one of the cars lost control and veered into oncoming traffic.

Dlamini’s older brother Michael told the Weekend Witness that his family was shattered by Sithembiso’s unexpected death. “His station commander Colonel Ngubane of Camperdown police station visited our family to break the news yesterday at KwaNdengezi in Pinetown,” he said.

Dlamini was driving a white bakkie that collided with another white bakkie.

Police spokesperson Major Thulani Zwane said police are investigating a case of culpable homicide.

KZN emergency services spokesperson Robert Mckenzie said three people died at the scene and one victim sustained serious injuries and later died in Northdale Hospital.
