Three British tourists killed in South Africa car crash

Three British tourists on an adventure and working holiday have been killed in a car crash in South Africa.

Peter and Miranda Harris, co-founders of Christian conservation organisation A Rocha, and the wife of the charity's CEO, Susanna Naylor, were killed in the accident.

The CEO, Peter Naylor, and the driver of the car are being treated at a local hospital and are in a stable condition.

The group had been on their way to an airport to fly back to England after driving up South Africa's famous 450-mile Garden Route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth when their car flipped over the Swartkops Bridge and plummeted into a river in Port Elizabeth.

It is believed a gust of wind blew their Toyota station wagon and luggage trailer into a car driving alongside them.

Fellow motorists abandoned their cars and rushed down the embankment and, with the help of locals, waded into the water to pull out all the occupants from the vehicle.

A Rocha International spokesman said: "Their families and friends are held in our prayers. We know that this comes as a profound shock to everyone in the A Rocha Family and to many others around the world".
