Limpopo police have confirmed they will charge Carl Pistorius, older brother of prison inmate Oscar Pistorius, with reckless and negligent driving following a crash in August last year.

It is the latest legal problem to confront the Pistorius family.

Limpopo police spokesperson, Ronel Otto, say they are charging Pistorius because he is refusing to give the police a statement.

This comes after he was seriously injured in a head on collision on the N1 near Modimolle. He had to be freed from the wreckage. The court will now be faced with deciding if he is guilty or not

According to Otto the other driver and several eyewitnesses have already given their statements.

It is alleged that Pistorius is refusing to do so on advice of his lawyer.

Last year, the Pistorius family said that the accident was not Carl’s fault.

Pistorius had to undergo several operations following the accident. He sustained lacerations to his heart and liver and went into respiratory failure after the head-on collision.

The court will decide if he is guilty or not.
