West Ham target Bryce Moon has been involved in a fatal car accident.
23-year-old Moon, who was part of the Bafana Bafana squad for the recent Confederations Cup was driving a car which killed a female pedestrian in Sandton, South Africa in the early hours of Monday morning.
Rumours that the right-back, who currently plays for Panathinaikos was drunk at the wheel have however been swiftly refuted by the player who told kickoff.com:
”It happened on a bend as I was driving from a friend’s place in Sandhurst. I was driving on the curve of a road and I couldn’t see the women (I say women, because there were two).
"When I suddenly saw them I tried everything I could to avoid hitting them so I tried to drive to an opposite direction, but the confusion was that they both ran in different directions. The lady I hit ran to my direction and unfortunately, I hit her.
“I did drink two beers at the party, but I was not drunk. The accident was unfortunate because the two ladies ran in different directions and the direction I chose happened to be the one where the lady ran to.”
Moon has been linked with the Hammers since the January transfer window and is understood to remain on the potential list of replacements should Lucas Neill choose not to accept the one-year contract extension from West Ham that remains on the table.
