But well-placed sources told the Daily News that the fatal accident had caught everyone by surprise, as the first lady’s security details — who were travelling in a Toyota Hilux behind her — were not speeding.
“They were doing between 20km/hour and 40 km/hour. The gap between their car and the first lady was about five hundred metres.“When they tried to speed up a little bit to narrow the gap, their car veered off the road. The driver tried to control the car and pull it back onto the road, but it rolled,” one source said.“All this time, the first lady had come out of her car and was watching the entire tragic development. She is in terrible shock and is devastated.“She regarded those boys as her children and the accident has left her extremely traumatised and upset,” another source told the Daily News further.
