The motorcyclist says he believes his late mother protected him in the crash.

Johan Smith (45) believes his late mother’s watchful eye saved his life last week, reports the Lowvelder.

He crashed into low-hanging wires while riding his motorbike along a road in the Lowveld.

“It sounds strange, but I believe my mother protected me. I could feel her with me,” he told Lowvelder.

Smith, whose mother died last year, is a resident of Randburg in Johannesburg but he was visiting the Lowveld to help with the Clover bike tour. He was going to stay a little longer in the Lowveld, but after the incident, he decided to rather go back home.
