A missionary family from Alberta, Canada died in a crash. The terrible accident occured when their vehicle was hit in a head-on collision in South Africa on Sunday.
Missionaries Brendan Perrott, 33, his wife, Melissa, 32, their children Evelyn, 5, and Colton, 3, along with an orphan they were mentoring named Sabelo Sibeko were all killed along with four other victims when the vehicles exploded in the crash.
“They were all burnt beyond recognition. Preliminary investigations reveal that one vehicle attempted to overtake. It then collided with another on-coming vehicle,” an SABC report said.
“It’s a Navara double cab that collided with a Subaru vehicle and after they collided they also caught fire. In the Navara it had two occupants and they were declared dead, five occupants in Subaru were declared dead on the scene. All in all we lost nine lives in the accident,” Free State emergency services spokesperson Sipho Towa told SABC.
