“I was involved in a head-on collision around midnight (Saturday). I’m alive, please ignore other news circulating. A Toyota Corolla coming (towards) Christmas Pass failed to stop and hit a VW which was in front of it, then it swerved coming into my lane as I was driving in the opposite direction,” said Samaita.
He said he suffered minor head injuries and is being treated at an undisclosed private hospital.
Images shared by Samaita showed his seriously damaged Mercedes Benz.
“I want to thank the Lord that I am still alive ,” Samaita told NewsDay.
