The stepdaughter of controversial Durban businesswoman, Shawn Mpisane, is in a critical condition in a local hospital after a horror crash in the city centre.

It has been confirmed from several sources that it was TV personality and gym fanatic, Sbahle Mpisane who was in the accident.

The accident occurred along Margaret Mngadi Avenue, formerly known as Victoria Embankment.

It is alleged that her car left the road and hit a pole, causing it to overturn.

Photographs circulating on social media show a blue luxury German coupé that has been badly damaged.

The Mpisane family could not be reached for comment.

Metro Police Spokesperson, Parboo Sewpersad has confirmed that they attended to the accident scene, but could not confirm the woman’s identity.

“Metro Police did attend the accident. It was a blue BMW which was involved. It apparently collided with a light pole and caught alight. It was a female driver in the vehicle. She was trapped. The ambulance was attending to the patient and they took the patient to hospital,” says Sewpersad.

Social media is abuzz as fans continue to wish Sbahle Mpisane a speedy recovery, using the hash tag #PrayForSbahle
