Brit mother dies in horror smash on wildlife holiday as family’s car careers off the road

A BRIT mum on a safari holiday was killed when the family’s car careered off the road.

Sharon Davies, 46, was found dying in the passenger seat of the wreck after the crash left the driver injured along with two kids — a girl of 14 and a 17-year-old boy.

The older teen, her partner’s son, was airlifted to hospital and is fighting for life in South Africa.

The family had been driving to neighbouring Botswana after landing at Johannesburg airport.

The car was discovered on its side near Rustenburg in South Africa’s North West Province.

A police and ambulance spokesman said: “Paramedics found the woman lying trapped in the ­vehicle.

Nothing more could be done for her. She was declared dead at the scene.”

Tragic Sharon was from Mountain Ash, South Wales. Pal Sheila Mills said: “She was a lovely person inside and out.”

Police investigating how the driver lost control of the car launched a culpable homicide probe.

The Foreign Office confirmed: “We are assisting the family of a British woman following a road accident in South Africa.”
