A family was left broken hearted over the loss of many family members in one day.

The family was mourning the loss of their grandmother when some family members were killed and others were seriously injured on the way to a funeral.

The Sibetha family was traveling to Eastern Cape, South Africa, to bury their grandmother when they were involved in a car accident.

Siviwe Sibetha ,29, his wife, Nosimanye Sibetha, 28, and their three-month-old son were pronounced dead at the scene.

Five other family members were seriously injured, and were taken to a nearby hospital where they are fighting for their lives.

Sadly, after hearing the devastating news, another member of the family, 72-year-old Ntombencinci Sibetha, who suffered from high blood pressure, collapsed and died.

Now, the family will have to collect money to bury the four additional family members.
