She was critically injured when her car left the road, hit a pole and overturned. There has also been speculation that another passenger in the car may have been fatally injured, based on pictures of the scene that have been shared.
RESCUE Care paramedics have revealed that jaws of life had to be used to free Sbahle Mpisane after her horrific crash on the Victoria Embankment at about 4am.
The jaws of life are usually required to be used by emergency service providers to cut apart the vehicle wreckage in order for the emergency workers to be able to free those trapped inside the crashed vehicle.
Garrith Jamieson, a spokesperson for Rescue Care Paramedics said: “A woman believed to be in her thirties has sustained critical injuries after the vehicle she was driving lost control and collided with a tree on the Victoria Embankment near the yacht mall in Durban around 4am this morning.
Sbahle was then rushed to a Durban hospital, in ICU where she has been fighting for her life. However news coming in this morning reveal that Sbahle whose boyfriend Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has passed away.
Sbahle’s father, Sbu Mpisane, said earlier today that the family had gathered at the hospital to collect the deceased’s remains and they begin burial arrangements. Sbu further asked the media and public to pray for the family in this trying moment.
Rest in Peace Sbahle Mpisane.
