was travelling in collided with a delivery truck in Pretoria as he made
his way home from training.
Sundowns spokesperson Kabelo Mosito reportedly said the Bafana

after undergoing tests.
The Brazilians have since issued a statement saying 'Killer' was
excused from training on Wednesday, but he will be at Chloorkop in
preparation for Saturday's opening PSL clash at Bloemfontein Celtic.
"We have assessed Katlego and we are glad to announce that the
player has not suffered any injuries or bruises, which means the player
is fine and will resume training on Thursday," team doctor Carl Tabane
said on the club's website.
"We have decided to give him a day off and when he reports back
to training on Thursday we will then reassess him to make sure that
everything is ok."
Downs goalkeeper Thela Ngobeni was also involved in a car
accident last month ahead of the club's pre-season trip to Ghana, but
suffered no major injuries.
