Oscar Pistorius' brother, Carl, is this morning recovering after being involved in a serious car accident at the week-end.

Carl was on the N1 Highway just outside Modimolle when the accident occurred.

His Uncle Arnold said in a statement: "Carl’s vehicle was hit head-on by another car that had swerved from the opposite side of the [N1] highway into oncoming traffic. Carl was badly hurt but we are thankful that he is out of danger. He was transferred to a hospital in Pretoria.”

Police have confirmed that they are investigating the matter but have denied that it involved drunken driving.

Meanwhile, final arguments in the Oscar trial are expected to commence on Thursday.
