It was difficult to establish who the culprit was in the head-on-collision that claimed the life of award-winning Isidingo actress Ashley Callie, according to Netcare 911 and the Johannesburg metro police.

It has also been established that police have not yet questioned the driver and occupants of the Renault that collided with Callie's Smart Car. The driver of the other car was discharged from hospital days ago.

As a result, a special metro police accident investigating team would have to reconstruct the accident scene to unravel what happened, spokesman Edna Mamonyane said.

"So far we still don't know what happened, but we are going to hand over the case to the SAPS once our investigation is over."

Netcare 911 spokesman Mark Stokoe said yesterday it was difficult to say who was at fault because the collision occurred right at the centre of an intersection.

"We do not know what exactly happened because while the Renault was travelling southerly, we could not tell which direction was Ashley coming from," he said.

Stokoe said the Renault was hit slightly to the left front corner.

Mamonyane said statements would be collected from those who were in the Renault. She said a case of culpable homicide had been opened.

Lauren Callie, Ashley's sister, said the family did not have the details of what happened on the night of the accident.

She said: "We are still waiting to be fully briefed on what exactly happened."

Meanwhile, the cast of Isidingo held a private prayer meeting in honour of Callie before starting work yesterday.

Her memorial service will be held on Thursday at the Johannesburg Country Club. Cast publicist Nyagunda Chauke said they had not yet discussed what would happen to the storyline.

The 32-year-old actress was involved in a head-on collision with another car a fortnight ago.

She was rushed to the Johannesburg Hospital where she underwent brain surgery but died a week later.
