Officials say he lost control, crashing the car on the cement road barrier.

A driver of a maroon Toyota Tazz died on Monday afternoon after the car lost control and crashed.

The car was split in two and police say the man thought to be in his late 30s was travelling alone.

The accident happened on the R40 near the Mbombela Showgrounds near Riverside, Mbombela.

“He was seriously injured and was transported to the Rob Ferreira Hospital in Mbombela where he later died,” Safety and Security spokesman Joseph Mabuza said.
