Generations actor in hospital after car crash that killed 2‚ injured 4 – reports


Generations actor Rapulana Seiphemo‚ who plays Tau Mogale‚ is reported to be in a critical but stable condition in a private Johannesburg hospital after a car accident last night‚ according to various news reports.

The actor‚ aged 48‚ is expected to undergo surgery this afternoon‚ the SABC’s Thabile Mbhele said via Twitter. This has not been independently verified as yet‚ despite attempts to do so.

Generations: The Legacy publicist Gaaratwe Mokhethi told the Sowetan that they are still conducting investigations and cannot confirm nor deny anything at this point.

“We can’t comment under pressure because this is a sensitive matter. We have heard the rumours but cannot confirm or deny anything.”

Paramedics from ER24 said that two men were killed and four others injured after two vehicles collided on the N14 near the R55‚ near Diepsloot‚ north of Johannesburg.

One vehicle was found in the middle island of the road while the other was found amongst some bushes on the side of the road.

Three people had been inside each vehicle.

“Paramedics found that two men‚ one from each vehicle‚ had sustained fatal injuries in the collision.

“Four other patients were found on scene‚ two of them critically injured.

“Paramedics treated the patients and provided them with advanced life support interventions. Once treated‚ both critically injured patients were airlifted by a private medical helicopter to nearby hospitals for urgent treatment.

“The two remaining patients were transported by ambulance to nearby hospitals for further treatment‚” ER24 said.
