Pictures emerge purporting to show horrific crash involving Jabu Mahlangu
Pictures have been circulated on social media purporting to show a horrific accident involving ex-Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana star Jabu Mahlangu.
Mahlangu was in Far East Rand Hospital in Brakpan after the crash in the early hours of Saturday morning in Benoni, a lawyer for Mahlangu confirmed on Saturday.
The lawyer, Mabu Marweshe, from a law firm that represents Mahlangu, Marweshe Attorneys, said he could not give an update yet on the ex-midfield star's condition.
A source close to Mahlangu had told TimesLIVE that his BMW 4 Series had apparently been in a collision with a minibus taxi.
The pictures being circulated on social media show a car that looks like a wrecked BMW, and an overturned and heavily damaged Toyota Hiace Quantum.
Initial indications are that more than one person other than Mahlangu was injured and also admitted to hospital.
Mahlangu, formerly known as Jabu Pule, played for clubs including Chiefs, Orlando Pirates, SV Mattersburg in Austria and Supersport United.
He has been working as a brand ambassador for SuperSport United, and a TV football analyst on pay sports channel SuperSport.
