JOHANNESBURG - The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) says it has not yet decided whether to prosecute Carl Pistorius, brother of jailed Paralympian Oscar Pistorius, on reckless and negligent driving charges following an accident outside Modimolle.

In August last year, Carl was involved in a head-on collision with another vehicle.

He had to be freed from the wreckage with the 'jaws of life' before he and the other driver were taken to hospital, both with serious injuries.

The NPA's Velekhaya Mgobhozi says although the summons is ready to be served on Pistorius, they have had to take the docket back to the police for further investigation.

"The NPA took a decision to have a look at the docket again, to have a look at the evidence and decided to send it back for investigation because more evidence was needed."

Three weeks ago Limpopo police said Pistorius faced reckless and negligent driving charges.

Police say the decision was made after he failed to submit a statement.
