The suspect apparently took the family car after committing the murders, drove onto the Rooiberg/Bela Bela R516 road and thereafter crashed it into a truck coming from the opposite direction. He died instantly.

The motive behind the incident is still unknown at this stage but domestic violence cannot be ruled out.
