Key to the investigation is an unidentified pedestrian and a 23 year old lenasia motorist who also died in the accident. "At this stage the theory is the pedestrian was trying to cross the highway when one of the vehicles swerved to avoid him. It's not known weather it was the Mayor's driver who tried to avoid the pedestrian or the other driver".
"The Mayor's two bodyguards are still in hospital in critical, but stable condition. The driver of a Nissan NP200 that collided head on with the BMW X5 the Mayor was travelling in died.
"Crucial to the investigation, is the pedestrian" said a police source. "The driver of the bakkie county died at Chris Hani Baragwanath hospital in Soweto after succumbing to his injuries while Matongo's protectors were airlifted to Milpark Hospital from the scene.
