According to the IPSS crew, the vehicle had rolled over in its departure from the N2. Anele Ngcongca himself was found lying some distance away from where the vehicle had come to a stop. Paramedics declared the footballer dead at the scene. Meanwhile, the female driver was ‘severely entrapped’ inside what was left of the car.

She is now receiving medical treatment in a nearby hospital, following emergency interventions from the rescue team:

“Earlier this morning, IPSS Medical Rescue responded to a single-vehicle roll-over on the N2 near Mtunzini. On arrival of IPSS advanced life support paramedics, they found an adult male lying approximately 30m from the wrecked vehicle. The man showed no signs of life and was declared dead by paramedics.”

“The female driver was severely entrapped in the wreckage, having sustained critical injuries. Whilst under the care of advanced life support paramedics, rescue crews use the jaws of life to free the woman from the wreckage. Once freed, she was transported to a nearby private hospital for further care.”
