Carl Pistorius to be charged with negligent driving
Carl Pistorius, brother of Paralympian, Oscar Pistorius, will be charged for reckless and negligent driving in connection with a car accident on the N1 highway near Modimolle, in which he collided head-on with another vehicle in August last year.
Pistorius was taken to hospital with serious leg injuries as well as a rupture to his heart and other organs. He has made a full recovery since then.
Limpopo police spokesperson, Ronel Otto, has said that the decision to charge Pistorius was made earlier this month due to the fact that he never provided a full statement to the investigating officer since the accident.
“The investigating officer obtained statements from the other parties and witnesses. Despite several efforts (by the officer), Mr Pistorius did not submit his statement. The docket was then sent to court. The prosecutor then instructed that he should be charged,” he said.
He is expected to appear in court next month.
Pistorius was charged with culpable homicide in 2008 colliding with a motorcyclist, who later died. He was acquitted of the charges in May 2014.
