Anele Ngcongca, South Africa World Cup Star Dies In Car Accident (PHOTOS)

A car accident has claimed the life of Anele Ngcongca, a AmaZulu star who featured for South Africa at the 2010 World Cup. He lost his life in a crash as he drove from Johannesburg to Durban.

Ngcongca was a passenger in the vehicle as it lost control on a highway 31 miles north of Durban. The female driver is in a critical condition in hospital.

“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,” Paul Herbst of IPSS Medical Rescue said in a statement.





His Premier Soccer League club AmaZulu confirmed the news.
