Johannesburg - Afrikaans singer Kurt Darren thought he was “going to die” after he was involved in a serious car accident early on Sunday morning, Beeld reported.

According to his brother, Darren van Heerden, the singer thought that his back was broken and complained that he couldn’t breathe while still trapped in the wreck of the Toyota Fortuner.

The Loslappie singer was airlifted to the Netcare Milpark Hospital after he and two other people – music manger, Marnus Bisschof, and his assistant, Nadia van Rensburg – were involved in a crash on their way home from watching a rugby match at a restaurant in Pretoria.

The accident took place on the Kameeldrift road close to Darren’s house.

Bisschof was driving Darren home when he allegedly swerved off the road after being blinded by the headlights of an oncoming car.

Darren has broken eight ribs and is in a serious but stable condition.

The singer’s wife, Dunay, is currently on a European boat cruise with her mother and aunt.

Isaac Mahamba, spokesperson for the Tshwane Metro Police, confirmed the incident and added that the exact cause of the accident is not yet known.

A case of reckless or negligent driving is being investigated.
