Mhere's father Joseph, who was also in the car, survived the crash.

During the trial, eyewitnesses alleged that Naidoo told them he could not control his vehicle and that he fell asleep.

In Naidoo's plea explanation, he stated that he lost control of his vehicle due to "unexpected mechanical defects".
