He said: "There was a pedestrian on the side of the road, unfortunately she was only looking the opposite way, and just as I got close to her she took a step into the road.
"I tried to sway and hit the brakes and do all I can but unfortunately I was too close and I had a collision with her."
The incident took place on Paul Kruger Drive in Roodepoort when ProVerb, whose full name is Tebogo Thekiso, was travelling home after his 04:00-06:00 DJ slot on the station.
Highveld Stereo station manager Ravi Naidoo as well as M-Net's channel manager Pierre Cloete have both said they are supporting ProVerb "during this difficult time".
