Andrew Turnbull has died after succumbing to injuries sustained in a car crash. Two others were killed in the horrific collision outside Port Alfred on Sunday afternoon.

"Andrew our only son and brother to Lindy passed away in the early hours of this morning in PE due to serious injuries from a car accident.. His friend Ryan Byrne died at the scene. Please I'm am begging everyone to please give us time to mourn and to stop the horrible stuff that is being posted on FB. We are heartbroken," his mother, Martha Turnbull posted on Facebook on Monday morning.

According to transport department spokesperson Khuselwa Rantjie, the collision occurred on the R72 near Port Alfred in the direction of Kenton-On-Sea.
"A Mercedes Benz with two occupants, including the driver, was travelling from Port Alfred and collided with a Jaguar travelling from Kenton. The number of occupants in the Jaguar has not been confirmed."
On Sunday night, the Dispatch confirmed the Jaguar belonged to Andrew Turnbull.

"It's alleged that driving at high speed may have contributed to the incident. Local authorities will continue with further investigations," Rantjie said.
On social media, a video alleged to have been taken by the passenger in Turnbull's car, showed a reading of 260km per hour on the vehicles speedometer.
Turnbull was out on bail after being accused of assaulting his former girlfriend‚ Chere Gray.

The occupants of the other car didn't deserve that. :(

260km/ph? Are there not limiters on these vehicles?
260km/h on the speedo is probaby under 250km/h actual speed, which is what most high performance cars are governed to.

Agreed re the occupants of the other car...

Who is this Turnbull guy? Google just tell.me he was a woman abuser.
Yeah. He was and "alleged" woman abuser, but only cause the court case wasn't finished yet. There was a video of him holding her by her throat.

I'm only sad that he had to possibly take out other with his stupidity.

Besides being a woman abuser was he anything else worth making the news, celebrity of sorts?

Read about the assault case a few months back and forgot about it. Had to google him now to see who he was.

I find this strange.

Now where is all the MYBB speedfreaks who claim high speed is safe.

Anyhow karma is alive and well

RIP All expecially those innocent who lost their lives in this.

High speed is perfectly safe.
It's hitting other things at high speed that is a lot less safe.

Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly coming to a halt, that's what gets you.
