- Attempts to prove that the video footage showing the fatal Pinetown crash on September 5, was obtained illegally from the RTMC, have been unsuccessful. In the public interest we are airing this video again.
Last week an estimated 22 people were killed in a horrific accident on the M13, in Pinetown, near Durban.
The young truck driver involved in last week's is now facing murder charges.
Sanele Goodness May was initially charged with culpable homicide after his truck crashed into four taxis and a car.
But when he appeared in the Pinetown Magistrate's Court on Monday, prosecutors revised the charges to 22 counts of murder.

Residents are calling for heavy-duty trucks to be banned from the notorious M-13 during peak hours.
They claim truck drivers have posed a threat to locals for years - using alternative routes to avoid the R30 toll fee.
