PINETOWN, KwaZulu-Natal - In September 2013, Wheels24 reported on the horror Pinetown crash in Durban which killed 24 people.

In August 2014, Swazi national, Sanele Goodness May's, whose truck crashed into four minibus taxis killing 24 people, may consider a plea bargain.

May's lawyer Professor Mdletshe on Tuesday (August 5) asked the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Durban for the case against his client to be postponed for "possible plea bargain negotiations". The matter was then postponed to September 17.


On the evening of September 5 2013, May's truck smashed into four minibus taxis and two cars at an intersection at the bottom of Fields Hill in Pinetown. The horror crash killed 22 people at the scene and a further two died later in hospital.

May, who has remained in custody since his arrest, was previously denied bail in the Pinetown Magistrate's Court. He was charged with 24 counts of murder but this was changed to 24 culpable homicide charges.

At May's previous appearance in court the matter was postponed, according to National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Nathi Mncube to allow the state to consider bringing more charges and more accused.
