Meanwhile, 2Oceansvibe has reported that Cindy Nell is “traumatised but fine” following the horror crash.
She said: “I am so traumatised, but I am fine. I was driving on Kloof Street and going about my business, and I found it unusual that such a big truck was driving on that road.
“As I was turning, I heard a screeching sound, and the truck knocked into me and dragged my car for 100 metres and spun out of control.”
