Family members say Mr Sitaram was destined for Ladysmith to visit an aunt and left his home in Forderville between 7.30pm and 7.40pm.

They believe that he lost control of the white Toyota Corolla he was driving near the Aloes Farm Stall, causing it to veer off the road and collide with a tree. The family say this occurred at about 8.30pm.

A friend who was passing recognised Mr Sitaram’s vehicle and called a breakdown company from Estcourt. A staff member from the company had to break the sad news to Mr Sitaram’s sister.

Hoping to find their beloved still alive, the family was shattered when they arrived on scene.

His mother, Shama Sitaram explained how family members raced to the accident scene with their hope burning bright but this light was snuffed out when they saw his lifeless body pushed into the back seat of the vehicle and paramedics announced that her son was dead. He suffered severe head and neck injuries.
