The man seen flung from a BMW convertible in video footage filmed in Cape Town has been identified as Thabang Sidloyi.

Sidloyi was seriously injured following the crash on the N2 highway near the Langa off-ramp, and later died.

Cape Town Metro police spokesperson Inspector Maxine Jordaan confirmed that the incident had taken place on Friday.

“Three serious injuries had been reported at the time of the crash,” Jordaan told The Citizen.

“Two people in the BMW were injured, as well as the driver of the Peugeot.”

Video footage, uploaded onto YouTube by Alex Williamson, shows theBMW appear from the extreme left lane, clipping the front of a silver Kia Picanto as it makes its way across the highway, close to the Langa off-ramp.

The BMW then slams into the concrete barrier in the middle of the highway, sending one of the passengers flying into the air, before stopping.

Sidloyi, a 27-year-old actor from Gugulethu, had been a passenger with three other people in his BMW which was being driven by a friend at the time.

Sidloyi was best known for his starring role in the feature film The Good Man.
