Top Billing presenter dies in tragic accident

This is soooooo sad! Top Billing Presenter Simba Mhere died early this morning after being involved in an accident in Johannesburg. 

The Johannesburg metro police said the driver of the vehicle that crashed into Simba will be charged with culpable homicide.

Spokesperson Superintendent Edna Mamonyane said the accident happened along William Nicol Drive after 5am.

“A VW Polo that had got off the N1 in Fourways, crossed over the middle island and crashed into Simba’s side. Simba was driving and the strong impact killed Simba and a passenger seated upfront,” said Mamonyane.

The passenger seated upfront was identified as Kady Shay O'Bryan, she leaved behind an eight year old girl. Kady and Simba  died on the scene. A third passenger in the car (allegedly Simba's father) and the Polo driver were taken to hospital.

Simba was on his way to Cape Town for the J&B Met. The Zimbabwe native propelled to stardom after winning a presenter search in 2010.

Police say the Polo driver will be charged with culpable homicide and reckless and negligent driving. Metro police officers said could not see any visible injuries or bleeding on the Polo driver at the hospital

Prayers to Simba & Kady's family.
