Marburg Police Officer-in-charge Sergeant Mark Dowson said the cause of the crash was still unknown.
“I don’t know if we’ll ever know; it’s a straight trajectory road, weather conditions were good, and the road was good. There is no reason for the vehicle to have run off the road,” Sgt Dowson said.
“It has left the road, gone down the embankment and the centre of the car collided head on with a tree.”
No skid marks were left on the 100km/hr stretch of road but Sgt Dowson said there were marks off the side of the road.
The Forensic Crash Unit is looking into the cause of the crash, with speed being a possible factor.
“All different avenues are being looked at, at the moment,” Sgt Dowson said.
