Former Miss South Africa Claudia Henkel is recuperating with family after sustaining minor injuries following a car accident on Monday.

"It shows you how life changes in a blink of an eye. Monday morning on my way to a meeting, a man skipped a red robot going at 110 km/h. Slammed into me and I woke up in an ambulance," Claudia captioned a post on Instagram.

Speaking to Channel24 about the incident Claudia said: "I was in the passenger seat with a friend on my way to a meeting when we were struck by another vehicle at a set of traffic lights in Randburg. The previous evening was the SA Style Awards. We had stayed over at the hotel and left early the next morning. We stopped at the traffic light, and the light turned green.
