Cape Town – Afrikaans singer Jak de Priester's mother-in-law died and his wife and kids were injured in a car accident near Uvhongo in KwaZulu-Natal on Wednesday.

De Priester told JacarandaFM on Wednesday that his wife, Michelle Roux, seemingly fell asleep behind the wheel after which she lost control over the car and overturned it.

    Aan Jak de Priester, Ek het my Ma verloor 31/12/1211 toe sy 96 jaar oud was en ek het haar al die tyd versorg.En tog elke dag wens ek dat ek meer kwaliteit tyd met haar gehad het alhoewel sy die laaste 3jaar Dimentia gehad en dit moeilik was.Ek is bly jou vrou en kinders het oorleef, maar sy gaan jou baie nodig hê bo en behalwe die rekonstriewe sjurigie aan haar arm die feit dat sy bestuur het gaan haar 'n lang tyd neem om te verwerk. Ek raak nie persoonlik nie maar glo my die hoekoms en waaroms by 'n mens bly vir 'n baie lang tyd. Kyk mooi na haar en verstaan haar onvermoeë om haar self te vergewe. Dit maak nie saak hoe ons as mense tyd wil terug draai nie God het sy eie tyd met almal van ons. Charmaine Meyer, ek is op Facebook so jy kan gaan kyk en skryf as wil. Hierdie boodskap kom maar net van iemand wie se hart wat uitgaan na jul verlies.
