Isidingo actress remains in critical condition
Isidingo actress Ashley Callie remained in a critical condition in the intensive-care unit of a Johannesburg hospital on Monday after a car crash over the weekend, her sister Lauren said.
“She’s still stable but she’s in a critical condition,” said Lauren Callie.
The 32-year-old actress, best known for her role as Lee Haines, was in an accident on the corner of Fourth Avenue and Tana Road in Johannesburg on Friday evening.
She has already undergone surgery to relieve pressure on her brain.
Callie remained unconscious, which was expected as she sustained a severe head injury and was being sedated, Lauren said.
She said her family was “quite distraught but comforted by the fact that her [Ashley’s] condition remains stable”.
Callie was driving alone in a Smart Car when there was a head-on collision with a red Renault.
The driver of the Renault—a male—and two female passengers were also seriously injured and transported to Milpark Hospital.
Lauren Callie said her sister had received numerous messages of support, “which has been most comforting”.—Sapa.
