Third Road Accident For Joburg Family
A woman who lost her sister and brother to car crashes has herself been seriously injured in a crash, it was reported on Wednesday.
Four years ago, Denzel Claasen died in a car crash while travelling to Fun Valley, in Eldorado Park, The Star reported.
A year later, his sister Doronitha, 21, died when an unlicensed driver crashed into a wall against which she was leaning while showing off her new car.
Their mother Dorothy reportedly died of heartache last year, unable to come to terms with her loss.
On Monday, Doronitha's twin sister Rosaline Moola was trapped in the wreckage of her car when a truck carrying bricks from Vanderbijlpark hit her car, wedging it against a metal road barrier on the N1 north, near 14th Avenue.
At the time, paramedics said a man died and 28 people were injured in the crash.
"What I saw is the stuff you see in the movies, not in real life. People were crying, it was madness," Moola's father Johnny Claasen told the newspaper.
Moola was admitted to Garden City Hospital's intensive care unit where she was recovering.
"She went to church on Sunday, and maybe God said it was not her turn yet," Claasen told The Star.
