Nigerian man and his two young children die in car crash in South Africa
A Nigerian man, Ifeanyi Mbah and his two children on Monday night lost their lives in a fatal car accident in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape, South Africa.
Ifeanyi, 42, and his two sons, Uchenna, 6, and Chinedu, one, died at the scene of the accident.
His wife, Nomabandla Mbah, 33, was the only survivor in the accident and she was taken to a clinic in Motherwell, where she received treatment for a knee injury.
It was gathered that the family had been travelling along the N2, near Bluewater Bay, when their car veered off the road and hit a barrier.
According to the Police spokesperson Captain Andre Beetge, it appeared that the husband had been driving the vehicle when the accident occurred, but it was not known yet what had caused him to lose control and veer off the road.
“At about 8.40pm, a white Volkswagen Polo was travelling along the N2, from Bluewater Bay towards Gqeberha, when it left the road and collided with a barrier. The vehicle overturned in the process and landed on its roof,” Beetge said.
A case of culpable homicide is under investigation.
