A fatal auto crash claimed the lives of a Nigerian man identified as Ifeanyi Mbah and his two sons in South Africa.
His wife, Nomabandla Mbah, 33, was the only survivor in the accident that occurred in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape on Monday night, March 22.
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.
Ifeanyi, 42, and their two sons, Uchenna, 6, and Chinedu, one, died at the scene. Nomabandla was taken to a clinic in Motherwell, where she received treatment for a knee injury.
Police spokesperson Captain Andre Beetge, who confirmed the incident, said 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.
