A retired couple got involved in a traffic accident on Houwhoek Pass near the town of Grabouw, 65 km south-east of Cape Town in South Africa. The two were in a passenger car and collided with an oncoming fuel truck.
The woman, identified as Riana Wiid died in the collision. Her husband – Ben Wiid, apparently could not bear the thought of his wife no longer being by his side, was caught on video running into the flames of the burning fuel truck, falling on the ground and burning to death.
Ben was a retired pharmacist and Riana a retired teacher. They lived in Somerset West. They are survived by two daughters and three grandchildren.
