A prominent actor in the popular soap ‘Generations The Legacy’ is said to be in a critical condition at a Johannesburg hospital following a car accident.

Actor, Rapulana Seiphemo is reportedly fighting for his life at Milpark hospital after being involved in a collision on the N14 near Diepsloot north of Johannesburg last night.

Generations: The Legacy publicist Gaaratwe Mokhethi said that they are still conducting investigations and cannot confirm nor deny anything at this point.

"I can't confirm at this stage because the details are sketchy. We can't comment under pressure because this is a sensitive matter. We have heard the rumours but cannot confirm or deny anything"

Report from ER24

Two men were killed and four others injured after two vehicles collided on the N14 near the R55, near Diepsloot, North of Johannesburg.

Paramedics found that three people had been inside each vehicle.

Two men, one from each vehicle,  sustained fatal injuries in the collision and were declared dead on scene.

Four other patients were found on scene, two of them critically injured.

Once treated, both critically injured patients were airlifted by a private medical helicopter to nearby hospitals for urgent treatment.

The two remaining patients were transported by ambulance to nearby hospitals for further treatment.

Ya, TJ Modupe also survived horrific car accident in December if not mistaken. Manaka Ranaka knocked a girl down, now is Rapulana. Hlabelang Badimo, is unnatural for a woman to marry two men. Wa hlola ka Sesotho. Never heard of that in my lifetime.
